Terms of Agreement

The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) is committed to presenting CME activities that promote improvements in health care quality and education and are independent of the control of commercial interests. As part of this commitment, STFM has outlined the following terms, conditions, and purposes of support for its CME activities. Partner support is designated for non-CME expenses associated with the conference. Each partner application will be reviewed by the STFM External Support Review Committee.

The conference partner will provide a non-CME experience for STFM conference attendees, via products, services, and professional training opportunities related to family medicine education and/or patient care. Participation does not include any formal educational and/or training in a CME setting. Partner support is used for administrative and technical conference expenses, and is not used for any educational or meal portion of the conference.

STFM is required to ensure that the source of partner support from any commercial interest, either direct or “in-kind,” is disclosed to conference attendees. This disclosure will not include the use of a trade name or a product-group message. The acknowledgment of commercial support may state the name, mission, and clinical involvement of the partner or and may include corporate logos and slogans, if they are not product promotional in nature.

Partnerships may be canceled by written notice to STFM by September 30, 2024.  Cancellations received between September 30 and November 30, 2024 will be refunded at 50% of partner fee. Cancellations received after November 30, 2024 are non-refundable, unless STFM is able to reassign partnership to a new partner. In the event STFM’s conference is canceled due to fire, strikes, governmental regulations, terrorism or other causes, STFM and partners have no further obligation to each other, and STFM shall determine an equitable basis for the refund of such portion of the partnership fees as is possible, after due consideration of expenditures and commitments already made.  It is the partner's responsibility to cancel all other arrangements made in connection with exhibiting, including hotel reservations, requests for the services of official vendors, or any other contracted services associated with the conference.
