2014 Annual Conference Summary
The 2013 Annual Conference in Pictures
From legislative visits to inspiring Iverson Bell sessions on diversity, the conference hit many high points.
(Note: Hover over the arrows on top to navigate to more photos.)
The 2013 Annual conference proved to be one of the AAVMC’s most well-attended and successful conferences to date. Nearly 250 veterinary medical educators, policymakers, and students gathered for the conference and the biennial Iverson Bell Symposium.
Despite threatened snowstorms, March 7 ending up being a beautiful day for legislative visits and AAVMC member representatives were able to meet directly with many Congressional members or staff. During the visits, representatives from member schools discussed the AAVMC’s legislative agenda, which included encouraging members of the House of Representatives to join the newly formed Veterinary Medicine Caucus, and funding for veterinary research and the Veterinary Medical Loan Repayment Program.
For example, in photo two, during legislative visits arranged by the AAVMC,

U.S. Representative Tom Latham (R-IA).
