The time has come for the "Cinderella" field of burns to be transformed as the South African Burn Society (SABS) grows, and we reach the critical mass needed to fulfil the role of the SABS in an environment in which there is a high burden of disease, and which has been neglected for so long. When I took over as President, the SABS had a mere 30 members. We now have a record 340 members as a result of a successful membership drive this year, launched through our new website (saburnsociety.co.za) which offers easy online application, as well as through visits to burn units around the country. It is important to build a network among professionals working in burns in order to share knowledge and support, and to work together for change. Membership is free for these reasons, in the interests of encouraging as many professionals as possible to join.
