HFSA Corporate Membership
The Heart Failure Society of America is planning many new projects as well as strengthening existing ones for the upcoming year. In addition to our 2017 Annual Meeting at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas, TX in September and the Advanced Heart Failure Review course that will be held in the fall, we anticipate vigorous participation in advocacy and educational activities over the year. We funded in 2016 a large number of research and travel grants to help jumpstart the careers of our early career members and our Early Career Committee has been embraced with enthusiasm by the next generation of leaders in the heart failure world developing Hands-on Workshops, Mentoring Programs and a number of new initiatives for 2017 and beyond. Including a reboot of the Turnberry Fellows Program relaunched as a multidisciplinary program titled Future Leaders in Heart Failure.
An important initiative for the HFSA has been to increase meaningful relations with corporate partners and, to this end, we invite you to formalize your relationship with the HFSA by becoming a corporate sponsor.
Corporate Member Benefits
Two face to face (F2F) meetings to review with HFSA leadership the agenda for the Society and opportunities for your company to partner with us in some of our initiatives and for HFSA leaders to learn about your plans, what you have in the pipeline and potential ways in which to collaborate on your programs.
In addition to F2F meetings at the HFSA annual meeting, leaders of HFSA will meet with industry partners at the annual meetings of ACC and AHA providing a number of opportunities throughout the year to discuss partnership initiatives.
Industry Supported Satellite Programs
The HFSA provides opportunities for industry supported CME-accredited symposia to be held at the HFSA Annual Meetings. There is no fee to attend these programs, however, attendees must be registered for the HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting.
The HFSA is approved by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) as an accredited provider of continuing medical education. HFSA will provide CME credit and oversee compliance with ACCME and HFSA guidelines for all satellite symposia held during the Annual Scientific Meeting of the HFSA.
