STS Mailing List License Information
The STS membership mailing list license is available to send STS-approved mailers only. The Society will determine if the submitted mailer is acceptable for dissemination to the STS membership. Each STS mailing list license is for one-time use only and only for the mailer approved. The STS mailing list may not, in whole or in part, be copied or reproduced in any way; nor can it be transferred to other parties.
To begin the mailing list license request process:
Prepare your mailer and send a copy of the final version to Samantha McCarthy at smccarthy [at] sts [dot] org or fax to (312) 202-5801. Please submit the final version of the mailer, with no edits or changes to be made. All aspects of the mailer are to be submitted for STS approval, including FDA status and other disclaimers, letters, business reply cards, brochures, etc.
When submitting your mailer for approval, please select the format of the list preferred, and the segment of STS members you wish to reach:
- Mailing list format:
- Printed adhesive (Avery 5160) labels for $900
- Electronic Excel CSV file for $950
Mailing list data type (All numbers are approximate. Fees do not change regardless of list segment chosen.)
- Active Surgeon Members - 3,100 (100 are Canadian)
- International Surgeon Members - 990
- Senior/Retired Surgeon Members - 1,710 (280 are international)
- Associate Members - 350 (40 are non-CT surgeon physicians)
- Candidate Members - 350 (50 are international)
- Pre-Candidate Members - 200
- All Members - 6,700
The STS Executive Director will review your mailer. If your mailer is approved, an invoice and agreement will be sent via e-mail.
Please allow 7 business days from confirmation of receipt of your mailer for a decision.
Payment is required before the list is licensed. Faxed copies of checks are not acceptable; the check must arrive at STS Headquarters. If paying with corporate check, please remember to put the invoice number on the check. If paying with a major credit card, please note that STS must process the card to release the list; this may take 1-2 business days.
Once your mailer is approved and payment is processed, the requested list will be prepared and sent to you. FedEx will be used to send printed adhesive labels; e-mail will be used to send Excel CSV files.
STS does not license its members' phone/fax numbers or e-mail addresses.
