The Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) is the only professional organisation representing veterinarians across Australia since 1921, and our vision is to be the health and welfare leader in Australia’s animal industries. As Australia’s only collective voice for vets, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) are experienced advocates and active leaders on all issues of animal health and welfare. For nearly 100 years we’ve represented vets in every corner of Australia – and we always will. Driven by science, respect and a collective strength, we connect our nationwide family of members every day, allowing them to share ideas, knowledge and success. Collaboration makes us stronger both as individuals and as an industry. By supporting vets, we also support their local communities, making a positive and enduring difference daily. We know how important it is to keep your skills and knowledge up to date, and appreciate our profession's commitment to life-long learning. To support your CPD requirements during this time, we've worked tirelessly to curate the VetFest 2020 program - a virtual conference for all veterinary professionals regardless of geographical boundaries.
