Non-Commercial Policy
Speakers will not be allowed under any circumstances to promote any product, company, or service within the presentation or handouts. It is both STMA's and the speaker's responsibility to present unbiased, honest information to attendees. STMA will NOT tolerate the following:
- Use of company or university logos. For example, company and university logos cannot appear on your slides.
- Use of brand or trade names. For example, when discussing pesticides, only the common name should be mentioned.
- Biased research results or data that positively reflect your company, product, or service and all competitors negatively. If your presentation requires inclusion of a product, company, or service, comprehensive data should be presented. For example, when discussing effectiveness of pesticides, the results of various pesticides should be presented instead of promoting the positive effects of one.
- Product, company, or service promotion. Individual promotion of products, companies, or services will not be allowed. The education session "New Trends and Technology in Sports Turf" has been specifically designated for promotion of company products and services. If you are not presenting during this presentation, please comply with STMA's policy.
STMA will be monitoring presentations to ensure compliance. If you have any questions on what can and cannot be included in your presentation, please contact Kristen Althouse, kalthouse@stma.org.


Pictures Needed!
Please send a picture of yourself for STMA to use for electronic marketing of your presentation.
