2016 AAVSB Annual Meeting & Conference

September 22-24, 2016

Registration is closed. Please contact Lainie Franklin at with questions.

This year we are heading to the stunning desert stylings of the FireSky Resort & Spa in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona! The 2016 AAVSB Annual Meeting & Conference brings together Member Boards to collaborate, educate, network, and conduct business providing direction for the Association. The conference attracts approximately 150 attendees that includes Board Members, Board Administrators, AAVSB Board of Directors, AAVSB Committee Members, and AAVSB Staff. This is a prime opportunity for your collective voice to be heard and to stay abreast of the latest information in veterinary medicine regulation.

This year, we ask you to commit to send a board member and the Executive Director so both may return to your board with the knowledge on current topics in the regulation of veterinary medicine.
