Our 2023 conference “Collaborate to Elevate” is almost here.  There is still time to register to receive the early bird rate.  On January 28th, the conference registration fee increases, so don’t wait to register. 

We will be taking over the second floor for our 2023 conference to ensure all sessions, meals, sponsors, vendors, and our silent auction will be located in the same area. Our 2022 conference welcomed approximately 275 people from over 60 different animal welfare and protection agencies. We continue to build upon the success from prior years and we once again will be offering two and a half days of training, with four classroom tracks running simultaneously for most of the event. Our exhibit area will no doubt be action packed with approximately 25 different vendor displays, showcasing various products, programs, and services.
