Both the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists and the American Association of Veterinary State Boards have approved Alltech’s 27th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium for Continuing Education Credits.
ARPAS has determined a maximum of 12 hours will be earned for attending Alltech’s symposium, entitled "The Game Changers: Creative Concepts for Agribusiness to Respond to Relentless Commoditization and to Innovate for a Greener Future." ARPAS members will self-determine how many CEUs are earned at the symposium based on the actual number of presentation hours attended, and may report their CEUs on the ARPAS website at www.arpas.org or by downloading and submitting the CEU reporting form.
The AAVSB's Registry of Approved Continuing Education committee has approved the symposium as meeting the standards adopted by the AAVSB. The maximum CEU for veterinarians under the AAVSB RACE program will be 12 units. Delegates must register their CEUs by submitting a certificate of attendance, which will be available at the symposium information booth.
The symposium will be held at the Lexington Convention Center in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, from May 22 through 25, 2011.
