FACA is excited to announce that we will be returning to the Florida Hotel and Conference Center for our 2023 Annual Training Conference. We will be taking over the second floor for our 2023 conference to ensure all sessions, meals, 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 will be building upon the success from years prior and once again offering two and a half days of training, with classroom tracks running simultaneously for most of the event. Our exhibit area will no doubt be action packed with several different vendor displays, showcasing various products, programs and services.

For our 2023 conference, we are working with the University of Florida to create a shelter medicine track for Shelter Veterinarians and clinic personnel. Our goal is to receive RACE approval for continuing education.

We will also be offering a euthanasia certification course during the conference.  Attendees must attend all sessions on Friday and Saturday and complete their practical portion under the supervision of their shelter veterinarian.  Attendees who wish to attend the certification course, must submit the survey link HERE after registering for the conference.
