Letter From the President: Registration Is Open!

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

2020 has certainly brought more than its fair share of turmoil and uncertainty. But the one thing that remains VERY certain is the strength and resolve of the animal welfare movement. We can, and should, take great pride in the unparalleled collaboration that has grown between national, international, state, and local organizations. To honor this unprecedented industry-wide effort, the theme of our Fall Conference for Animal Welfare Advancement is COLLABORATION. 

Coming to you virtually December 1-3, The Association’s 2020 Fall Conference will provide 2½ days of learning and networking, featuring three tracks on topics of great interest to ALL leaders: 

  • Emerging Trends in Animal Welfare
  • Leadership
  • Strategic Human Resources
  • Plus, 4 general sessions about collaboration, inclusion, and diversity, including special keynote Vu Le, author of the Nonprofit AF blog 

As always, the conference is about more than learning. It’s about connecting too. Meet up with your peers! Our virtual exhibit hall will be bigger and more fun than before, and we’re planning several can’t-miss Happy Hours. 

Check out the conference agenda and register today! (And don’t forget that members receive a special discounted rate; here’s how to join The Association if you haven’t already.)


The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement is committed to helping you strengthen your talents and build partnerships. Join us in December as we celebrate collaboration, inclusion, and the end of 2020. We look forward to helping you and your team maximize your skills to impact the animals and people we serve.

Don’t miss the learning and networking event of the season!

Until then,
