Poster Abstract Submission Reopens

Did you not submit a poster abstract because you can’t attend the Charlotte National Meeting? AALAS is now planning a virtual meeting as well as an onsite meeting. As a result, we are reopening poster abstract submission until Tuesday, September 1, 2020. Poster abstracts will be considered in the animal welfare, clinical, husbandry/management, and laboratory investigations categories. Click below to access the portal. Those who have submitted abstracts before will have a password and username. New users must create an account.

National Meeting to Feature Onsite and Virtual Attendance

AALAS recognizes the utmost importance of providing education and training for members. We are planning an onsite National Meeting in Charlotte, NC, along with offering a virtual meeting component. Because of multiple contractual agreements with the convention center and area hotels, the financial impact on AALAS would be greater if AALAS canceled prior to decisions beyond AALAS’ control. AALAS will not know until closer to October whether the onsite meeting will be allowed to happen or canceled due to the pandemic and various governmental agencies involved in decisions to restrict attendance as well as employer decisions regarding travel. Planning for the meeting in both onsite and virtual delivery methods allows the most flexibility for pivoting the meeting should canceling the onsite portion become necessary. AALAS will provide details for both the onsite and virtual meeting experience as soon as they are finalized. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
