Everyone submitting a presentation, or listed as an author for a presentation for consideration at an ASHA event, is required to complete a disclosure form indicating any financial or nonfinancial relationship related to the content of the proposed session.
Completion of the disclosure form is necessary for all ASHA continuing education providers to meet the ASHA Continuing Education Board’s
Requirement 3: Transparency in Course Planning, Delivery, and Marketing. This requirement promotes transparency in the design, development, and presentation of courses offered for ASHA CEUs, and aligns ASHA practices with current practices among other professions, particularly in the continuing medication education arena.

Frequently Asked Questions for Presenters.
By submitting a proposal to present at the ASHA Convention, you explicitly agree:
ASHA's acceptance of a proposal does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products, or clinical procedures.
ASHA's Continuing Education Board defines a conflict of interest as any financial or nonfinancial consideration or relationship relevant to course content that compromises or has the potential to compromise professional judgment. Providers of events approved for ASHA CEUs must identify and disclose to participants any such interest on the part of any speaker or instructor.
Please note that having a disclosable financial or nonfinancial relationship does not prevent you from speaking. Disclosing such relationships is intended to give Convention attendees a more complete context in which to consider the information you provide. As a general guideline, err on the side of disclosure.
Refusal to disclose any financial or nonfinancial relationships disqualifies you from speaking at Convention.
If your presentation is accepted, the information you provide will be disclosed on a webpage. People who wish to view the disclosures will click through to the page from the Convention scheduling web tool, which includes descriptions of all of the sessions. Note that for financial relationships, dollar amounts are not disclosed.
In addition, you will be expected to disclose relevant relationships on-site at the time of your presentation, either verbally or visually (view
sample disclosure slides). We will provide additional guidelines for on-site disclosures after acceptance.
Examples of relevant and disclosable financial relationships may include:
Examples of relevant and disclosable nonfinancial relationships may include:
