2021 AAAP Meeting Update

2021 AAAP Meeting Update

The AVMA has elected to move the 2021 convention fully online. This was done to ensure the safety of all participants. With this being said, AAAP will be moving to a virtual format as well. We all had hoped to be back face to face this year in Minneapolis however, the safety of our membership is our first priority. AAAP expects to have a similar virtual annual meeting format to last year. Registration for the AAAP 2021 Virtual Meeting will be separate from the AVMA Convention registration. Please stay tuned for more details.
