72nd AALAS National Meeting
AALAS National Meeting Each fall since 1950, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science has held its annual National Meeting. During the five days of the meeting, members and nonmembers come together to enjoy the workshops, lectures, poster sessions, and exhibits. The program is designed to have topics relevant to the entire membership. Exhibitors have an opportunity to interact with AALAS members from the academic community, research institutions, government organizations, and commercial companies. The AALAS National Meeting is the largest gathering in the world of professionals concerned with the production, care, and use of laboratory animals. 2021 AALAS National Meeting Preliminary Program may be viewed here.

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. 2020 Record of Participation 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.
