    CE Activities and Records

    AALAS will provide a record form that attendees of the Virtual National Meeting can download from the virtual meeting site and use to track their CE activities from the sessions they attend. This form will allow you to create your own record of attendance - what sessions you viewed, whether presented live or watched as a recording - and will include all essential information about the CE activity. The record form will be appropriate for use with the Technician Registry, CMAR, ACLAM, and your state veterinary boards for veterinary and veterinary technician license renewal.

    To help those interested in CE for license renewal, the American Association of Veterinary State Boards was consulted for recommendations on CE from our meeting. Their response was, because each state varies, everyone will want to verify with their own state's veterinary board for any special requirements on CE and record-keeping.

    In your CE records file, please remember to keep a copy of your Virtual 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.
