AAVLD Foundation Auction

President Reception

Friday, October 17, 2014

Kansas City, MO.


Thanks to ALL OF YOU who continually support the AAVLD Foundation Auction and make it a huge success each year. This year the auction will again be one of the highlights of the annual AAVLD meeting.  Enjoy the fun of a real auction with professional auctioneers.


The mission of the AAVLD Foundation:

·   Recruit future veterinary diagnosticians

·   Educate and retain the next generation of veterinary diagnosticians

·   Reward excellence in veterinary diagnostic medicine

Please support the AAVLD Foundation by donating an item(s) from your laboratory.


Foundation accomplishments:


A primary focus of the Foundation in recent years has been to provide travel funding to increase the number of students (DVM and post-DVM graduate students), as well as laboratory technicians that attend and make presentations at our annual meeting as a way to increase long term involvement with AAVLD.


2014 Highlights

·   AAVLD increased the number of $1,500 travel awards in 2014 from twelve to eighteen. New this year is a travel award focused on laboratory technicians, which was incredibly well received. In 2014 AAVLD awarded 12 graduate student trainee travel awards (10 different institutions), and 6 laboratory staff travel awards (6 different institutions). 

·   CPCVM total funding has increased 50% again (from $4,000 to $6,000) to increase number of DVM students attending the meeting.
