Registration Open for 2015 USAHA/AAVLD Annual Meeting

Plans are well underway for the 119th United States Animal Health Association (USAHA) and 58th American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD) Annual Meeting. The meeting will take place October 22-28, 2015 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, R.I. The event brings together leaders and stakeholders from across the country to address the most pressing issues in livestock and poultry disease, regulations, diagnostics and research in the United States. Registration is open to anyone interested in the mission of USAHA and AAVLD to safeguard the health of the U.S. herds and flocks.

“Program development is well underway for the multiple committees, scientific and plenary sessions,” says Ben Richey, executive director of USAHA. The program includes 32 committee meetings addressing a wide range of topics across multiple species of livestock and poultry. “We are excited to be in Providence for the first time in the history of the organization, and working with our hosts in the northeast for a great meeting this fall.”

The Joint Plenary Session on Monday, October 26 will feature “Future of Livestock and Poultry: Food Security for the Next Decade,” looking comprehensively at the food chain and issues from producer to consumer. Additionally, AAVLD is planning to review the 2015 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreak during their plenary session on Saturday, October 24. Details on both sessions will be forthcoming as they are confirmed. Dr. David Schmitt, Iowa State Veterinarian and Dr. Tom Baldwin, Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory Director, are serving as 2015 program co-chairs for USAHA and AAVLD, respectively.

Meeting registration is now open and available. Early registrations will be accepted through September 30, and rates go up after that date. Detailed meeting information is available at www.usaha.org and www.aavld.org.
