BIHS Endorsement of Scientific Meetings

The British & Irish Hypertension Society has a policy to cover requests for endorsement of scientific meetings organised by outside agencies:

  • In order for the BIHS to endorse a meeting not wholly organised or initiated by itself, the BIHS Executive Committee must be actively involved in planning the scientific programme and selecting speakers etc.
  • The BIHS does not normally endorse meetings whose primary focus is unconnected to hypertension.
  • A request for endorsement should be sent to the BIHS Secretary (bihs@in-conference.org.uk) in the initial stages of the planning in order to comply with the above.
  • The involvement of a BIHS member either as a speaker or chair at the meeting is not sufficient to claim BIHS endorsement.
  • The Society’s name and logo must not be used to promote the meeting in any way until express permission and agreement has been granted by the President, Vice-President or Secretary on behalf of the BIHS Executive Committee. This includes invitations to other societies and/or agencies to participate in the event.
  • A decision by the Society to endorse or support a meeting does not necessarily imply any financial obligations on behalf of the BIHS. For further information, please contact:
