The Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists Sponsorships Committee Sponsorship Scoring System

(Approved and endorsed at the 108th Council Meeting on 29 August 2011 )

Logistics of receiving and processing sponsorships for academic activities 

All sponsorships of academic activities for fellows should go through Sponsorships Committee’s vetting.  The committee would consider the suitability of accepting the sponsorships.  Academic meetings organized by the Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists would be accepted automatically. Those from the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other large scale international academic meetings such as APA, Pacific Rim College, WPA, CINP and ECNP would be accepted in general.  For other meetings, the sponsors should enclose programme rundowns for vetting. The committee would decide within one week, and the College would issue a newsletter to fellows accordingly. 

The sponsorships allocation and the related scoring scheme are not applicable to trips for business, which should be dealt with separately by the Council. Sponsorships are separated into 3 categories according to location:

Cat.1)  HK/Macau/Guangdong;

Cat.2)  Rest of China/Taiwan/SEA; and

Cat.3)  Rest of the world.  

The sponsorships are restricted to Fellows only, unless the academic events are specified for members or inceptors as well.  

Sponsorships give more weight to active participation, with a range from poster presentation, paper presentation to invited major / keynote speech speaker.  

Local academic meeting sponsorships would include registration fee only, unless otherwise specified by the Sponsorships Committee. 

Overseas academic meeting sponsorships would include expenses on registration fee, economy air tickets or equivalent travelling, accommodation and ground transport, unless otherwise specified by the Sponsorships Committee.  All reimbursements are subject to actual expenditure. Each sponsorship would be specified with a maximum amount of expenditure. 

The sponsors will be charged to compensate for the administrative cost of the College according to location category; i.e. Cat. 1: HKD300 each sponsorship, Cat. 2: HKD 700 each sponsorship, and Cat. 3: HKD 1000 each sponsorship. The money will go to the general account of the College. 

The surplus money of sponsorships will go to the account for academic activities or future sponsorships, which is separate from the general account of the College.  

The Sponsorships Committee would keep an updated sponsorships record according to the three location categories.

Scoring System
