Discussions of Joint Conference with European Association of Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarians (EAZWV)
The European Association of Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarians (EAZWV) conducts a Continuing Education Conference annually that is similar to ours. You might be interested to know that the official language for their conference is English. The leadership of EAZWV and AAZV have been discussing the idea of having joint conferences on an occasional basis. To this end, we’re in the preliminary planning phase of a joint conference here in the U.S. in 2016. EAZWV’s conference is in May each year, and ours is usually in October. In 2016, we’re looking to have the joint conference sometime in late July. Several years after this first joint conference, we would schedule another one in a European city. So stay tuned for more information about this exciting collaboration of experts from around the world.
