IPPS Member Logo

Policy for Use of IPPS Member Logo

The International Pelvic Pain Society® (IPPS) designed a logo for members to use for individual business purposes. Members are not allowed to use the IPPS logo because it is a registered trademark, and, as such, can be used only on official materials produced by IPPS itself. The design is similar to the IPPS logo and clearly distinguishes the user as a “Member.” IPPS encourages members to use the logo on business materials signifying their professionalism and association with the Society. It can be printed on practice materials in accordance with the guidelines outlined below.

To obtain the digital and print version artwork for the member logo, please contact IPPS business office.
