2021 AASV Annual Meeting!
Registration is now open for AASV’s first-ever virtual Annual Meeting, «Navigating the Future … Together,» to be held February 27 – March 2, 2021. Led by AASV President-elect and Program Chair Dr. Mary Battrell, the AASV Program Committee has prepared a comprehensive lineup of continuing education for swine veterinarians, available online at aasv.org/annmtg/2021/program.php. In addition, the virtual presentation format has enabled some additional benefits not possible with an in-person meeting. Here’s a synopsis of what to expect:
The conference will be conducted in Central Standard Time (UTC-6). The majority of presentations will be prerecorded and made available for viewing during the scheduled time in the program, with the speakers present to answer questions via live chat. Once released, the presentation recordings will remain available for registered conference attendees to view at their convenience until April 30. Yes, that’s right — you’ll have 60 days to take in all of the continuing education the conference has to offer! And that’s not all…
Virtual Conference Bonus: One price per day provides access to ALL of that day’s concurrent pre-conference seminar presentations, enabling access to the content of five seminars for the price of one! (You must be registered for the main conference to register for the seminars.) While the speakers will be available for live chat Q&A only during their scheduled presentation time, the presentation recordings will be available for viewing by seminar registrants until April 30. What a deal!
A few key events will broadcast live, including the Foundation Luncheon, Monday morning General Session, Monday luncheon, and Tuesday morning Business Breakfast. Another change: the traditional AASV Awards Ceremony will be the live Grand Finale to close the meeting after Tuesday’s General Session concludes at noon.
Tech Tables exhibits, poster presentations, and the veterinary student oral and poster competitions will continue to be an important part of the conference. There will be plenty of opportunities to interact with fellow attendees in group or one-on-one chat during the presentations – or to reach out to attendees or exhibitors to schedule a meeting. Contests and giveaways will entice you to explore the conference site and become familiar with all that it has to offer. Don’t wait – Register today for the best virtual meeting AASV has ever held!
