SAMTAS'long-term objective of forming the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) was undertaken by the Management Training Committee comprising SAMTAS, Economic Development Board, University of Singapore, Nanyang University, Singapore Polytechnic, Adult Education Board, Joint Chambers of Commerce and the Singapore Manufacturers Association.

Throughout the early years of SIM, SAMTAS was represented by its Executive Committee, and was actively involved in the joint organisation of seminars and other activities.

Upon SIM's formation in 1964, Mr Tan Hoay Gie, former SAMTAS Patron and Trustee was appointed by the Board of Governors as a representative from SAMTAS.

In 1964, SAMTAS received recognition from the government as a training body and was tasked to host with six other organisations a national seminar on Management Development and Performance.
