    It is becoming the standard for national and international conferences to charge presenters the regular

    conference registration fee, however the Eleventh WCQ Program Committee has decided to discount the

    Congress registration fee to $150 which will cover Congress costs including admission to the reception on

    Friday, the Gala Event on Saturday evening, lunch on Sunday with an exciting program of events, exhibits,

    auction and entertainment. We are requesting donation items from presenters for the silent auction, which

    will be a way to publicize your business/agency. Each exhibit table will cost only $100, and there is an

    opportunity for two presenters to share an exhibit table for the same amount. There will be a fee of only

    $50 for presenters to attend each master workshop.

    In light of all the amazing discoveries and heightened awareness in our field, we’re certain you will want to be included with your significant work. We look forward to your participation!

    In May 1992, the Accreditation Council for continuing Medical Education (ACCME)

    issued new Standards for Commercial Support of Continuing Medical Education, stating


    “An accredited sponsor shall have a policy requiring disclosure of the existence

    of any significant financial interest or other relationship a faculty member of the

    sponsor has with the manufacturer(s) of any product(s) discussed in an

    education presentation. All certified CME activities shall conform to this policy.”

To be in compliance with the Standards, the CME accreditation committee, as an

    accredited sponsor, has developed the following disclosure of interest policy:

The CME accreditation committee requires that faculty members of CME activities and

    sponsors or joint sponsors, must disclose the existence of any significant financial

    interest or other relationship a faculty member has with a commercial entity that might

    have an impact on his or her presentation (such as consultant, lecturer, investigator,

    grantee, researcher, major stock holder, etc.) This disclosure must be made at the

    CME activity and, when possible in all promotional material.

Having a declared financial relationship does not prevent the faculty member from

    making a presentation or CME accreditation committee from sponsoring or jointly

    sponsoring a program; however, general information on such relationships will be

    communicated to participants, as specified in the Standards.


    In accordance with the above-cited disclosure of interest statement, following are all

    financial or significant relationship(s) with commercial entities of which I am aware;
