Malachite Management Inc. is a full-service association management company that supports medical, scientific and business organizations in the US and Canada. Our mission is to partner with professional associations to accelerate their vision and mission.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Malachite Management was founded in 1996 by Canadian visionary Allen Eaves, MD, PhD, who dedicated his life to the study of leukaemia and stem cell research.
