AVMA Summer Conference
August 2-6, 2019

Aug 1: House of Delegates / Capitol Hill visits
Aug 2: House of Delegates
Aug 3-6: Conference - CE sessions


Registering for the Conference

AVMA provides codes for particular groups attending the conference. Please register once we have those codes. They require your membership login when you register so have that ready. Because they ask so many questions about options we find it best for our delegation to book the conference themselves using PEX or being reimbursed.

The early-bird expires June 10th - so it is important to register by then.

You do not need to register for the AVMA Conference to attend HOD. Only register for the conference if you plan to stay-on and attend the CE sessions.

If you just want to visit the trade-show - there is usually a reduced price ticket for that option.

On the Saturday night "The Barkin' Cats" featuring blues harp maestro Tim Atkinson will be playing. You have been warned.

Hotel and Travel

Book your hotel as early as you can. It is best to reserve all the dates you might need and then change the reservation.

For the AVMA delegates, reservations are made through AVMA.

For others in the delegation, make sure you use the link above to the official AVMA site to get the best prices. Use your PEX card.

Use of PEX card

For those issued with a PEX visa cards here are a few things to remember:

1. It is easiest to use if you download the PEXcard App onto your phone.

2. The App enables you to quickly check your balance. I can add money instantly, so if you need more just message me.

3. The App makes it very easy to photography your receipts immediately. It will save you time over having to email them etc; Even if the receipt is on the screen just snap the screen. To add a receipt you just find the transaction in the app and add it there. The transaction will usually be on your App within a minute or two of the card being charged.

4. We must have receipts for everything! So please just make it easy and add your receipts at the time. Or email them right-away to staff@nysvms.org
