The situations may include, but are not limited to 1) stock options or bond holdings in a for-profit corporation or self-directed pension plan, 2) research grants, 3) employment (full or part time), 4) ownership or partnership, 5) consulting fees or other remuneration received by the presenter or his/her immediate family, including support that may be provided to attend the educational meeting, 6) nonremunerative positions of influence such as officer, board member, trustee, or public spokesperson.
