  • If the class is full, you may add yourself to the waitlist. Individuals on the waitlist will be confirmed as space becomes available.
  • IAVM Members are able to exclusively register through December 13, 2018.
  • As of December 14, 2018, both Members and Non-Members may register on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • If your attendance is dependent on receiving an IAVM scholarship, please wait to register until after receiving it, as we proactively hold back spaces for IAVM scholarship recipients.
  • Payment is due in full by March 1, 2019.
