Industry-Supported Symposium


We welcome your interest in holding an industry-supported symposium in conjunction with The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting. These programs complement the content offered by GSA and provide an opportunity for our attendees to further enrich their learning experience during the premier scientific meeting for those engaged in the field of aging.

An industry-supported symposium is a live educational program developed and supported by another organization and appended to the GSA Annual Scientific meeting. Such symposia are not GSA activities and, therefore, are not sponsored or co-sponsored by GSA; however, these events must be preapproved by GSA.

The online application deadline is May 29, 2023. GSA will not consider applications that are incomplete or are missing required signatures and documentation. GSA processes applications on a first-come, first-served basis. GSA will notify applicants in writing of acceptance of their symposium proposal – with confirmation of assigned date, time slot, and location – on a rolling basis as proposals are received.

A $1,000 refundable deposit is required upon submission of this application. If GSA does not approve the industry-supported symposium, the Society will return the deposit within 15 business days. Upon approval and acceptance, GSA will invoice the symposium organizer for the balance; payment is due upon receipt or within 30 days. The symposium must be paid for in full for inclusion in GSA promotional materials.

Organizer agrees to follow all Responsibilities of Sponsoring Organizations
