ASE Sponsorship Opportunity

About ASE:

As an organization dedicated to excellence in cardiovascular ultrasound for patient care, ASE strives to promote and provide opportunities for enhancement of knowledge and skills of its members and nonmembers through its educational programming. The purpose of its educational program is to improve proficiency and quality in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound, which is an important tool for optimal management of patients with heart and circulation diseases.

About Co-Sponsorship (without CME):

A co-sponsorship agreement without CME is one whereby the submitting organization is an ACCME Accredited Provider responsible for the educational integrity of the program. ASE will endorse the educational activity, but assumes no CME responsibility; the submitting organization is responsible for providing CME and ensuring that the activity is conducted in accordance with all ACCME guidelines and policies.

Application for ASE co-sponsorship is open to cardiovascular ultrasound-focused events. ASE will consider sponsorship of courses that contain a majority of multimodality or general cardiology content on a case by case basis.  ASE reserves the right to deny sponsorship of any event without cause. All events must meet the terms of ASE’s blackout and competing event policies.

Application Fee of $1,000 is non-refundable and should be made payable to the ASE, tax ID 31-0899106.  Application fee will be applied to the package price upon application approval.

As co-sponsor, ASE requires acknowledgement of its involvement in this program as follows:

  • Recognition that the program is being offered in cooperation with ASE on all promotional materials, including the program brochure, advertisements, etc., along with the ASE logo. ASE’s logo with the “in cooperation with” verbiage should appear on both the front and back of all promotional materials, and should be the same size as all other sponsor logos.
  • Acknowledgement in all onsite materials (syllabus, signage, acknowledgement slides, etc.).
  • Listing of the reduced registration fees for ASE members on all program registration materials. ASE members should be charged no more than 80% of the standard registration fees for this program.

Black-Out Policy

To be considered “outside” the blackout dates, courses must end before the start date and may not begin until after the end date (e.g., if our blackout dates are from 9/26-10/20, courses must end on or before 9/25 and may not begin until 10/21).  ASE will review all applications for events that take place during the blackout dates on a case by case basis as these events compete directly with pre-planned ASE live courses.

ASE will review all applications for competing events on a case by case basis as these events directly compete with pre-planned ASE live course.
