Conference Program:  2020 Conference Program


We continue to grow every year and this past event was our largest on record, with almost 300 people in attendance, representing over 60 different organizations, plus more sponsors and exhibitors than even before! Not to mention almost another 70 people who came in just for the Annual Awards Banquet!

For our 2020 event… we will once again be offering 3 full tracks, over 2 and a half days, to ensure that were truly had something for everyone. In addition to the standard CEU’s made available by FACA, we anticipate that all conference sessions will also be pre-approved for Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement.

Just let us know if you have any questions.
