Upcoming Presentations

Beginning January 1, 2024, participation in our (gratis) monthly seminar series is restricted to members only. There is a registration fee to attend the VCCIS SIG in June. Please refer to the "Word from our President" webpage why this change has been made.

Registration for our monthly online presentation series for Fall 2024 is open

These programs have been approved for one (1) hour of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize RACE approval. Credit may only be requested during the live presentation. On-demand viewing will not qualify for CE credit.

All of our presentations now require an active VCCIS membership. You are asked to register so we can reserve space for you and send you reminders. There is no charge to register for any presentation as an active VCCIS member other than for the VCCIS SIG held in June at the ACVIM Conference. Presentations are recorded and made available for viewing on-demand to VCCIS members only in our Resource Library.

Most presentations begin at 4:00 pm Eastern Time (some presentations may be scheduled a different time to accommodate international facilitators and guests). Zoom details are provided in the confirmation email sent upon successfully registering.
