March 2, 2021 – The IVMA Board of Directors has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely. Due to the limited class sizes required for social distancing guidelines, and travel restrictions for speakers and vendors, the IVMA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person Mountain West Veterinary Conference. The MWVC will move online to be 100% virtual enabling everyone to participate from the location of your choice and/or watch the recorded sessions after the meeting.
Our goal is to ensure that our members’ educational needs are met. The Idaho Board of Veterinary Medicine extended the date to June 30, 2021 in which they will require only HALF of the CE credits to renew both veterinarian and veterinary technician licenses.
