The Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) looks forward to welcoming the veterinary community back to face-to-face education and events around Australia.

The health and wellbeing of our veterinary community is of the upmost importance. To ensure this we continue to closely monitor the circumstances and requirements in all states and territories in line with local, state, and national authorities, public health advice and state government public health directives, as mandated. Currently, our events are running as scheduled and we will respond appropriately and provide further updates should the situation evolve.
