Hello AVORE Council Members and surgical colleagues.

Well, 2020 and into 2021 has been quite a year to say the least.  Fortunately it appears we may have turned a corner and I am writing you today to let you know that the AVORE Senior Council has decided to move forward with our summer 2021 meeting!  We are really excited that we will be able to meet safely and in person at a fabulous venue in

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  

We will have a packed and educational agenda including featured speakers:

Dr. Steve Martinez from WSU will be speaking on distal limb injuries.

Dr. David Dycus will present a Regenerative Medicine update.

Dr. Fred Pike, in conjunction with Everost, will put on a lecture and dry lab on performing the "neutral-wedge" osteotomy for treatment of excessive Tibial Plateau Angle.  

As always, we will have time for individual interesting case presentations, so please be prepared to present a 10-15 minute case report or presentation.  

We will also have a welcome AVORE sponsored "Lake Cruise" Thursday evening (7:30-9:30 pm) following our lectures.  

A reception Friday evening is being sponsored by Intrauma and Veterinary Transplant Services. 

Following the dry lab on Saturday, Everost is hosting an after hours event as well.

We want to encourage you to plan to stay until Sunday to enjoy time with your colleges and the local festivities.  Due to the Covid-19 concerns and restrictions, we will be limiting attendance to the first 50 registrants, so register early and please, please book your hotel accommodations 

directly through The Coeur d'Alene.  This will allow AVORE to fulfill our nightly room commitment for each of the 3 nights so we can continue to put on fantastic and educational CE in the years to come.
