Update on the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting

Posted: August 26, 2021

ACVR & Friends:

The health of ACVR members and their families is of paramount importance to us. The ACVR Program Committee and the ACVR Executive Council, unanimously decided to change our 2021 Annual Meeting format to all virtual. We acknowledge the fiscal responsibility of the cancellation with the New Orleans venue and hope to partner with this venue for the 2023 Annual ACVR Meeting.

This news may come as a disappointment to some and relief to others. ACVR is working quickly with our speakers and Vet Education to adjust our program to reflect this new change. Please plan for the meeting to run from October 20 – 23, 2021. Approximately 4 to 6 hours of LIVE RACE content is available daily, starting at 8:00 am Pacific/11:00 am Eastern. All Annual Business Meetings will be held over Zoom and will be available for those who may not be registered for the meeting.

Registration is open, and we welcome additional registrants. For those who registered as an in-person attendee for the 2021 meeting, your registration is automatically converted to all-virtual and the ACVR Administrative Office will refund the over-payment to your original method of purchase. If you need an alternate method, please email [email protected].

Further communication will come shortly, and any immediate concerns or questions can be sent to [email protected] or Dr. Drost, ACVR Executive Director, [email protected].
