AALAS National Meeting

Each fall since 1950, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science has held its annual National Meeting. During the five days of the meeting, members and nonmembers come together to enjoy the workshops, lectures, poster sessions, and exhibits. The program is designed to have topics relevant to the entire membership. Exhibitors have an opportunity to interact with AALAS members from the academic community, research institutions, government organizations, and commercial companies. The AALAS National Meeting is the largest gathering in the world of professionals concerned with the production, care, and use of laboratory animals.

2021 CE and RACE CE Information

AALAS has provided a form that National Meeting attendees can download and use to track their CE activities from sessions attended. This form allows you to create your own record of attendance - what sessions you attended onsite or viewed via the virtual meeting platform. The form will be appropriate for use with the Technician Registry, CMAR, ACLAM, and your state veterinary boards for veterinary and veterinary technician license renewal.

If you are a veterinarian or veterinary technician who needs RACE CE, please note the following:

  • You must register for the virtual meeting no later than 11:59 PM CT on Friday, October 8.
  • Due to AAVSB requirements regarding RACE CE credits, AAVSB requires that you watch virtual meeting sessions as they are live-streamed.
  • The meeting recordings do not count towards RACE CE.

If you do not need RACE CE, these requirements do not apply. Virtual meeting content access closes on Friday, October 29.

2021 Record of Participation

Because each state varies, attendees should verify with their own state's veterinary board for any special requirements on CE and record-keeping.

In your CE records file, please keep a copy of your National Meeting registration confirmation in case you are chosen for an audit by your state veterinary board. Audits typically request records from one to several years prior.
