2020 IVMA Annual Meeting - CANCELLED
With so much uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the IVMA Administrative Committee, along with the IVMA staff have made the difficult decision to forgo hosting the September 10-11, 2020 IVMA Annual Meeting. While we would like more than anything to see all of you in person in Ames, the health and safety of our attendees, vendors, speakers, and exhibitors are our first priority. We appreciate the feedback we received from the Annual Meeting Survey we sent out in June. The results of the survey and comments received helped our leadership team make their decision.

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to coming together with you in person in 2021.
