eBlast Communications

STS will email Society-approved communications (“eBlast Communications”) to all or part of its membership email list and/or its annual meeting registrant email list on behalf of applicants that meet certain terms and conditions as described below. 

To submit an application for an eBlast Communication:
Prepare your proposed eBlast Communication content for STS review. When the final version of your proposed eBlast Communication content is ready for STS review, email it to Samantha McCarthy. Please be sure to submit the final version of your proposed eBlast Communication, with no edits or changes remaining to be made. All aspects of the eBlast Communication are to be submitted for STS approval, including FDA status and any disclaimers, links to brochures or websites, and the like. Links should be live so that STS can review the linked content, as well. When submitting your proposed eBlast communication for approval, please identify the date on which you would like the eBlast to occur and one of the below email list and segment(s) of STS members you wish to reach. Also include a proposed subject line and prehearder. The subject line must begin with "Message from [COMPANY NAME]:" 

*Please note that we cannot guarantee the date(s) you choose will be available. 

File Type: 
File must be in HTML format with graphics embedded.

Your proposed eBlast Communication will be reviewed as soon as possible, but please allow up to 7 business days from confirmation of receipt for review to be completed and a decision rendered. If your proposed eBlast Communication is approved, an invoice and the STS eBlast Communications Agreement will be sent to you via email.

Payment and the signed STS eBlast Communications Agreement are required before the eBlast Communication can be sent. Faxed copies of checks are not acceptable; the check must arrive at STS Headquarters. If paying with a 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 first; this may take 1-2 business days.

Once your proposed eBlast Communication is approved and payment is processed, on the designated date STS will email your eBlast Communication to the members who are within the segment(s) of the email list you selected and for whom STS has an actionable e-mail address on file, in accordance with and subject to the terms of your signed STS eBlast Communications Agreement.

For more information about the STS eBlast Communication process, please contact Samantha McCarthy, Industry Relations Manager, at Samantha McCarthy or 312-202-5869.
