Welcome to the California Blood Bank Society (CBBS) website!  CBBS is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to improving practice and patient outcomes in the fields of transfusion medicine and cellular therapy (CT) by educating, developing, and inspiring professionals in our field. We are excited to have a team of dedicated and passionate Committee Members and Chairs for the 2018-2019 term! They are committed to providing high quality educational experiences for you through regional seminars and our annual meeting.

We encourage your involvement with CBBS, not only to keep current on what’s happening in the rapidly evolving world of healthcare, but also for the opportunities to make new connections and cultivate relationships with your colleagues in transfusion medicine and cellular therapy.  Feel free to explore our website, and if you are not yet a member, please consider joining. Although our organization is California based, we welcome members from anywhere in the country!  If you’re interested in participating on a committee, please complete the Volunteer Now! form. You can see a list of CBBS Committees under the ‘Communities’ tab.

The 2018-2019 CBBS Board is busy growing membership, planning outstanding education sessions and implementing the strategic plan to help guide us through the next few years. As we work to fulfill our mission and provide opportunities for professional growth for our members, we also will strive to bring vitality and excitement into our organization! We welcome your suggestions for how we can best serve you. Our contact information is available here.  

We are excited to announce that our 2019 Annual meeting will be held at the OMNI Resort & Spa Rancho Mirage, May 14 - 17, 2019. The weather should be great, plan to bring the family and stay awhile. We secured excellent pre- and post conference room rates at this fabulous property. To learn more about the Resort, click here. CBBS and its Committees are working together to provide an exceptional program to educate, inspire, and energize you! Watch your inbox for more information.

I am honored to follow in the footsteps of our many esteemed past Presidents.  I look forward to working with our 2018-2019 Board, our talented Committee volunteers, our engaged and enthusiastic Central Office team, and our valued members as we lay some new stepping stones into the future!
