*Student ambassadors needed on May 1*

On Monday, May 1, 2017, AVC will be conducting interviews with regional
applicants for the AVC class of 2021.

For many, this will be their first visit to AVC and we want them to see
firsthand what AVC has to offer.  In keeping with our "large family"
feeling at the College, we are recruiting student ambassadors to be matched
up with the applicants for the day, to escort them to the various
admissions activities, give them and their guests a tour of our school, and
answer questions they might have about the student experience here.

Here is a brief overview of what kind of time commitment this will

   1. *Friday, April 7 *(a week before final exams start)
      - 12:30 pm - join Dr. Lamont and Janice in Lecture B for a pizza
      - Learn about the changes to the admissions process and receive
      instructions for Interview Day
   2.  *Monday, May 1* (the first Monday after final exams end)
      - 8:30 am - ambassadors arrive in Learning Commons
      - 9:00 am - welcome ceremony
      - 9:30 am - ambassadors escort their assigned applicants to the
      various scheduled activities
      - 11:30 am - ambassadors join their applicants and families for lunch
      in the Wanda Wyatt Dining Hall

*10th International Working Dog Conference takes place April 2–6*

The International Working Dog Breeding Association is proud to host the
10th International Working Dog Conference, taking place in spectacular
Banff, Alberta. The objective of the conference is to create a
collaborative environment where program managers and handlers from
international working dog programs come together with researchers and
subject matter resources from scientific disciplines which influence the
working dog community. This meeting is a unique opportunity to exchange
critical information, which in turn results in advancement for numerous
aspects of working dog programs. The theme for IWDC 2017 is: *"Science and
Innovation: Advancing Breeding, Early Development, Training and
Deployment." The ABVMA has approved 20 hours CE for attending this
conference. *Early registration has been extended to January 31st. Register
at https://iwdc.iwdba.org/.


*International Veterinary Forensic Sciences Association conference takes
place May 16-18*

The International Veterinary Forensic Sciences Association
<http://www.ivfsa.org/> (IVFSA) will hold its 10thannual conference in New
York City from May 16–18, 2017. The goals of the IVFSA include

   - Promoting the health, welfare and safety of animals through the
   application of new and existing techniques of forensic science and crime
   scene processing to circumstances of animal abuse, neglect, cruelty,
   fighting, and death.
   - Educating veterinarians, the animal welfare community, law
   enforcement, crime scene analysts, forensic scientists, attorneys, judges,
   and pathologists on the use and application of these techniques.
   - Advancing and fostering excellence in the veterinary sciences.

This year, for the first time, our conference <http://aspcapro.org/ivfsa>
will take place in New York City under the sponsorship of the ASPCA.
Highlights will include:

   - New approaches to collaboration to better combat animal cruelty
   - Recent advances and new techniques, perspectives, and practices in
   veterinary forensics and animal law
   - Case studies demonstrating the impact of forensic sciences on cruelty
   case outcomes
   - The innovative partnership between the ASPCA, NYPD, and NYC District
   Attorney’s offices

Students are encouraged to attend. This field is small but growing, playing
an increasingly crucial role in identifying and addressing animal cruelty.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn and understand the warning
signs consistent with non-accidental injuries, a topic not usually
addressed in formal veterinary education. *Early-bird conference price is
