2022 Annual Conference
Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals is now closed!
Thank you to everyone who submitted. First presenters will be notified on March 1, 2022.

The AVTE is seeking proposals for sessions to be presented at the Annual Conference scheduled for August 2022 in Philadelphia, PA.

The AVTE 2022 Conference Committee seeks proposals for sessions that:

  1. support the association’s mission of promoting quality education in veterinary technology;

  2. introduce new, unique and successful methods of teaching today’s college students;

  3. incorporate interactive learning methods (not completely lecture-based); and

  4. would be taught by professionals known for their exceptional teaching styles 

See below for possible topics.

Presentation selection

To ensure the highest quality programming, each proposal will be peer reviewed in three steps by the AVTE 2022 Conference Committee. Proposals that meet the above criteria will be given the highest consideration. First presenters will be notified by March 1, 2022.


Only proposals submitted online by January 31, 2022 will be considered. The deadline has been extended to February 9, 2022!

By submitting a proposal you agree to the following:

  1. You will register for (at a reduced rate) and fully participate in the Annual Conference.

  2. You are available to speak between August 5th and 7th. 

  3. You are willing to modify your presentation if requested by members of the AVTE 2022 Conference Committee in order to best meet the above criteria.

  4. You will submit required information and materials in a timely manner. All deadlines will be included in a confirmation letter.

Each submission must include the following:

  1. A working title.

  2. A brief description (500 words max) of the session.

  3. Three measurable learning objectives.

  4. A brief biography of the presenter(s).

  5. Your comfort (currently) with speaking in person vs. remotely. We anticipate the conference will utilize a hybrid delivery method. This information will be used to set the presentation method (in person; virtual) for each session.
