2020 Annual Meeting Program Changes
ACVP appointed a Task Force on the Annual Meeting back in 2017 to explore options of changing the program schedule based on attendee feedback from the evaluation surveys. In 2020, we will be implementing some substantial changes into the schedule:
•The meeting will end on Tuesday evening with the ACVP Presidential Reception. Attendees can enjoy the best networking event of the meeting and then fly home on Wednesday morning.
•The Plenary Session will take place on Sunday morning
•Programming has been added to Monday afternoon.
•There will be no post-meeting workshops.
•ASVCP sessions may change time periods but the sessions will remain the same.
•Posters will involve shorter presentation times that do not have any competition with the program. The Education Committee is considering poster tours, electronic posters, focused posters and other additions to make these sessions attractive and exciting.
•There will be multiple, shorter career, leadership, and education sessions.
Here are the key program pieces that will remain the same:
•The meeting will begin with multiple pre-meeting workshops starting on Saturday morning (at an extra fee). Some workshops may be half-day, during the same time period.
•The focused groups and veterinary students will be represented with abstract submissions. ACVP will also continue to accept late-breaking abstracts.
•The Plenary session and Concurrent sessions will offer cutting-edge topics.
We look forward to receiving your feedback on this new format.
