In-person and Virtual options

Registration hosted by Cvent

AZVT Annual conference 2022

  • Registration thru Cvent

YO, READ BEFORE REGISTERING! I'm serious.

-You must register with the primary email address listed in your AZVT membership profile. Not sure? CHECK IT. If you REALLY need to use a different address, contact conference@azvt.org BEFORE REGISTERING.

-Credentialed vet techs, have your CVT/LVT/RVT number available (or "none issued" for those weird states). This is required for the registration process.

-Bringing guests? Register yourself first, go back in and register your guest(s). [Follow the Cvent process]

-Space is limited for wet labs. Only those holding a current 'Active' membership will be able to register for a lab, max of 1. WE ASK ONLY ONE PERSON PER FACILITY register for each wet lab. Also, please wait to register if these skills are not being used at your facility to allow those with higher need to register first.

-Review the In-Person vs. Virtual info below for dates, costs, and "refund-ability". [Refunds are done through the Cvent site]

-Lastly, if you read and follow the process on the Cvent site, you have a great chance of a successful registration. But...if you find yourself in a dark place in need of assistance, Contact us.

DID YOU READ AND PONDER THE INFO ABOVE? THEN YOU MAY PROCEED...
