A small group of sonographers met in April, 1980, to form the British Columbia Ultrasonographers' Society. Their purpose was to create a professional society to address the concerns of sonographers as a distinct entity rather than a sub-section of a larger association. After a great deal of work by this nucleus, the Society was incorporated on March 3, 1981.

The purpose of the Society is best described by the following excerpts from the Constitution:
