8/30/2021 UPDATE

The AKVMA is taking preventive measures to reduce the spread of communicable disease at our upcoming event, and we are collaborating with the Sheraton to ensure that precautions will be in place for this in-person event.

 

The AKVMA Board of Directors and AKVMA Executive Director realize that things can change at a moment’s notice, therefore this notice applies to the situation today. We will be prepared to adapt and change according to CDC, State and local regulations.

 

As it stands today, AKVMA is planning for an “in person” symposium. AKVMA will follow CDC guidelines and any additional State or local recommendations that are in place at the time of the conference.  

 

 

  • Since Alaska is in the high transmission category, masks will be required for admission to the conference and must be always worn in the conference area except when directly consuming food or beverages. Speakers will remove their masks when speaking.
