 *GVMA has pledged to provide LEAP CE to its free of charge members and to RVTs with a member in the practice. On Sunday GVMA members have the opportunity to attend one of three free 2-hour LEAP CE sessions (registration is necessary for admission so we may ensure seat availability). Non GVMA members are also welcome to attend one LEAP CE session for $175.
Only two hours are free for members. If members or non members wish to attend more than one two-hour LEAP session a one-day registration is required.
For LEAP CE only registrants seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The GVMA reserves the right to discontinue free LEAP CE registration in the event of overcrowding.

**The GVMA is no longer accepting pre-registrations. Please register on-site Nov 6th.
