Use of ABVLM logo
The ABVLM adopted policy, similar to many ABMS Boards, is to not allow for the use of its logo on letterhead, business cards, websites or any other promotional vehicles produced by ABVLM Diplomates or others without written approval from the Board of Directors or its representative.
However, Diplomates of the ABVLM are permitted and encouraged to create a Graphical Certification Badge (image lower right) which can be easily created by diplomates or their staff in the Diplomate Only Area of the website.
The ABVLM does provide specific language to certified Diplomates regarding ways in which their certified status may be listed in promotional materials. This information is sent to all Diplomates upon completion of the certification process, and a PDF copy of this document is available by clicking here.
Additionally, the ABVLM Advertising Policy has an impact on how diplomates may promote their certification.
