Greetings fellow AETA members:

As the summer heat settles in, we wish everyone a safe and relaxing season. The year tends to pass quickly, and we continue to gear up for our annual convention in beautiful Colorado Springs. We thank Dr. Matt Dorshorst and his convention planning team for their outstanding efforts on this convention. You can be certain we have planned a special event for all of you!

Our research committee has added a poster contest for all AETA and CETA members to participate in, including students. This will spice up our exhibitor area for additional interaction and educational opportunities. Up to 10 students will receive complimentary registration as an incentive to participate. We will continue to award our student scholarship winners as well.

AETA has teamed up with AASRP to host a small ruminant embryo transfer seminar at Ohio State University in June, and we continue to provide the Edwin Robertson Embryo Transfer Seminar at Virginia Tech with AABP in August. We have enjoyed collaborating with other allied partners in our industry to provide the best educational opportunities in the business.

IETS has invited AETA and CETA to a joint convention in 2023. We will fully analyze the schedule and logistics of this concept for that calendar year to decide whether the opportunity works well for each of the organizations involved. Please contact us with your comments and suggestions.

We hope you continue to appreciate the efforts of our promotion and membership committees. We completed a new brochure for use at AABP and AASRP seminars and conventions as well as other events throughout the year. Facebook has attracted a lot of attention from users who “like” our page and follow the news and highlights of our association. The AETA brand has been promoted nationally and internationally.

AETA has a lot to celebrate, and our committees are vibrant and innovative. We invite you to participate and serve as well as provide feedback to us throughout the year so we can steadily communicate with members. Thank you for the opportunity to serve this great organization, and we look forward to visiting with you in Colorado this fall.

Matt Iager, DVM
