Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The co-sponsor must send all activity-related materials to ASCP for review, editing, and approval. ASCP will announce this activity similar to other educational activities at the meeting. No information about the activity is to be mailed or otherwise disseminated prior to ASCP review.

Audience Generation and Activity Announcement

ASCP will be announcing the CPE activities offered at the meeting in the following ways:

  • Electronic messages to ASCP members/pre-registrants
  • Meeting Issue of The Consultant Pharmacist journal
  • ASCP's Web site
  • Final Conference Book

Announcement of Activities by Underwriters

ASCP does not allow underwriters or the designated medical education companies of inside symposia to distribute leaflets, food, brochures, journal advertisements or other materials to ASCP members to announce the symposium. Such activities may deemed promotional in nature and therefore significantly affect the original purpose and intent of this form of educational activity.

Acknowledgment of Underwriters

  • Underwriters of educational activities will be acknowledged by ASCP in the published conference book and ASCP Web site.
  • Underwriters will be recognized in the activity introduction.
