For credits earned during virtual Annual Meeting

The AACVPR Annual Meeting live broadcast is scheduled for October 6 – October 9, 2021. During the live broadcast dates, the meeting will be “live” with presentations broadcast concurrently, similar to an in-person event.

If you do not receive your emailed certificates, contact AACVPR no later than October 15.
