Welcome to the 10th International Companion Animal Welfare Conference.
This year's conference will take place in Stresa, Italy from the 29th to the 31st of October, so there's still plenty of time to register for the event.
Topics being covered this year in presentations and optional workshops include first aid, customer care, population dynamics and successful rehoming among many others. You can see the full programme here, and have a chance to win some brilliant prizes.
Once you've signed up and started planning your visit, you can join the ICAWC network to virtually 'meet' other delegates, swap ideas and find others who share your interests. There's even a Wiki you can use to spread the word about your organisation and expertise.
This blog will be updated regularly nearer the time with ICAWC news, and I'll be posting updates from the event for those of you who cannot make the conference this year but would have liked to attend.
Hope to see you there!
