All aspects of the Email Blast Communication are to be submitted for STS approval, including FDA status and any disclaimers, links to brochures or websites, and the like.

When submitting your proposed Email Blast Communication for approval, please identify the date on which you would like the Email Blast Communication to be distributed and one of the below email list and segment(s) of STS members you wish to reach. Also include a proposed subject line and preheader text (preheader is optional). The subject line must begin with "Message from [COMPANY NAME]:"

Your proposed Email Blast 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 Email Blast Communication is approved, an invoice and the STS eBlast Communications Agreement will be sent to you via email.

Payment and the signed STS Email Blast Communications Agreement are required before the Email Blast 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 Email Blast 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 email address on file, in accordance with and subject to the terms of your signed STS Email Blast Communications Agreement.

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