Annual Conference


 We have an exciting event for our next Annual Meeting in Veterinary Homeopathy. The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy and the Pitcairn Institute are putting on a joint conference at Saguaro Lake Ranch in Mesa, Arizona. We cordially invite you to mark your calendars and save the dates for this wonderful opportunity to get together as a larger group with our lovely colleagues.
The main conference dates are February 27th to 29th, 2020 (Thursday through Saturday), to be held in Saguaro Lake Ranch’s brand new larger conference facility. We will continue to provide the popular Optional Day for discussion and dialogue on Wednesday February 26th before the main conference. In addition, we would advise attendees to leave open the possibility we may still provide optional Sunday March 1st morning events to be followed by a goodbye luncheon.
Saguaro Lake Ranch is an all-inclusive venue, providing lodging, small cabins, and a main building where we share meals together. This enhances comradery and connecting with your colleagues, as well as offering incredible mountain views, accessible hiking trails yet still the comfort of a grassy area, shade trees, swimming pool, and is abounding with wildlife including wild horses that live in the National Park. The PIVH has used this location for our meetings for 15 years and what has kept us coming back is the unique experience of sharing meals and time together, with the accessibility of nature on our doorstep. 
The meeting schedule will be 9am to 5:30-6pm each day, with 2 to 3 hours around the mid-day lunch time so people can hike, swim or relax. Presentations will include a variety of speakers and topics, including some from Richard Pitcairn. CE credit per usual will be applied for through the AHVMA affiliation. We also try to obtain CE from states not in the AHVMA listing for anyone attending. 
Please see the website below for further details for our upcoming joint meeting and example speaker content from last year’s meeting. The website will be updated as the meeting plan develops, with further details on speakers and registration to be sent out soon: 
We look forward to seeing you in February 2020!
