Two new SDC regions in China and Bangladesh

Two new regions of the Society of Dyers and Colourists have joined its global community for colour, the SDC Jiangnan Region in China and the SDC Bangladesh Region. They are the latest recruits to an increasingly global professional body and educational charity that now boasts regions in seven countries including India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong.

Comments Clare Moore, SDC membership and qualifications officer, 'We are delighted to welcome these fledgling regions to the SDC at a time when the contribution of the Society to colour education, skills enhancement and best practice is attracting attention and gaining support worldwide.'

The SDC Jiangnan Region, which means south of the Yangtze River and includes Shanghai, Zhejiang Province and Jiangsu Province, held its inaugural lecture during a recent visit by SDC president, Susan Williams, and chief executive, Kenneth McGhee. Honorary officers include Prof. Fang (chairman), Ms Xia Zhang (secretary) and Ms Anli Tian (treasurer) – all from Jiangnan University.

Championed by Mr Hitendra Barmma of Brinntex Inc – now honorary chairman – the new SDC Bangladesh Region adds to the Society's fast growing presence in Asia. Mr Hafizur Rahman has been appointed secretary and Mr Muhammad Shah Jalal, treasurer.

All the Society's regions around the world will soon be invited to select finalists for the 2009 SDC Global Design Competition, the final of which will be held in Goa, India in conjunction with the Society's international colour conference 'Sustainability in Coloration: Vision 2020' which takes place on 25–26 June 2009 and is hosted by SDC India EC.

The Society has individual, professional members in 49 countries, with patron supporters in 12 of these, and is the world's only qualifying body for practitioners in colour.
