SVS Industry Relations’ Corporate Support Philosophy
At the SVS, our philosophy around industry support (beyond only companies) is centered on building collaborative, impactful, and sustainable partnerships that align with our values and mission and is beneficial to both parties. We believe that by working together, we can make a meaningful difference in the outcomes of the vascular community and patient populations we serve through:
- Transparency and Integrity: We believe in maintaining transparency and integrity in all our industry relations activities. We will operate with the highest ethical standards and ensure that our partnerships align with our values and mission.
- Creative Collaboration: We recognize that we cannot achieve our mission alone, and therefore seek to collaborate creatively – including innovative problem solving – with corporations, non-profits, and other organizations that share our goals and can bring unique perspectives and resources to the table.
- Impact: Our industry relations activities will focus on making a meaningful impact on the vascular community we serve. We will prioritize partnerships that have the potential to make a significant difference in the lives of our vascular and allied healthcare professionals and their patients.
- Sustainability: We aim to build long-term, sustainable alliance partnerships that can endure beyond short-term goals. We believe in building honest rapport and fostering relationships that can continue to grow and evolve over time, delivering continued value to all parties involved. Our Industry Alliance Program is designed to offer year-round engagement and benefits, beyond the week of the VAM.
- Flexibility and Adaptability: We recognize that the healthcare landscape is constantly changing, and we must be flexible and adaptable to respond to new challenges and opportunities. We will be proactive in seeking out new partnerships and innovative approaches, including input from our industry allies, to advance our mission.
