AVPA Scientific Meeting, Sydney – 15th and 16th February 2017 (following the 28th APSS)

Apologies from your website administrator for the failure to update the website partly due to a repeat of the spam problems we experienced late last year. It is anticipated that Kylie Hewson will come on board to assist with the website and to eventually take over the responsibility. Kylie is currently organising (through her husband) a draft of a new AVPA logo which members can view and vote on at the next meeting.

Karen Gao has recently (4 January) emailed members with the following advice as to the forthcoming meeting:

“Just a reminder and call for registration for the upcoming AVPA Conference on the 15th and 16th of February, right after the 28th APSS conference. Please see attached for the final program (Ed correction 20 January), as well as the registration form. Apologies for the delay on finalising and sending out the final program, it will be a packed and informative conference, covering topics including free range management, Avian Influenza and Biosecurity, Infectious Diseases and Vaccination, research reports, and cases studies.

Day 1: Wednesday 15th of February (half a day)
The AVPA Conference will immediately follow APSS on the Wednesday afternoon, at Sheraton on the Park. There will be an AVPA AGM at 5pm after the conference, then followed by AVPA dinner at 7pm, which is to be held at Celebrity Lounge, City Tattersalls Club.

Day 2: Thursday 16th of February (full day)
The second day of the conference will be held at Doltone House Hyde Park, which is at short distance from the Sheraton.

Thanks to the APSS committee, AVPA delegates may use the APSS conference rates for Wednesday night for accommodation options close by. Further information are available on the APSS website under ‘accommodation’, where a conference rate code is available for each hotel. http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/accommodation.shtml

Hope to see you all in February!
