AZA NAG Tenth Conference on Zoo and Wildlife Nutrition (in conjunction with AAZV)

Salt Lake City, Utah


The AZA Nutrition Advisory Group in conjunction with the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians is holding its tenth conference on zoo and wildlife nutrition in Salt Lake City, Utah from Sunday, September 29th through Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013 at the Sheraton, Salt Lake City.


We’ll have registration on Sunday between 1000a-1200p and on Monday morning between 0630a-0730a.  IF you get in later in the day on Sunday, we will be at the registration table from 600-630p that evening to register folks before the icebreaker (not previously listed on the schedule). 

Location for meeting: It looks as if we will be in a fairly large room this year (Wasatch Room), in close proximity to the AAZV room and posters.  We hope this will promote additional vet participation in our sessions, and foster overall better communications. The opening session and talk will be with the AAZV group in the Arches/Canyons Ballroom. 

SCARF Benefit.

  • Remember to try to bring items for the SCARF benefit raffle, if you can.
  • The SCARF benefit event, that includes the raffle,  will be on Monday evening in our meeting room at 7:00pm.
  • The event will be a “bit different” from anything we have done in the past – board and table games with a bar and snacks.
  • Bring a game that fits in your luggage (note: “Twister” does not fit in anyone’s luggage) and plan on a fun evening with colleagues and friends, to help benefit a good cause (there’ll be a reasonable “cover”)

NEEDED for SCARF benefit:

IF you are driving to the meeting, and IF you have a cornhole set you can bring, PLEASE contact me off list.  Yes, I am being serious.


Highs in the 70’s, lows in the 50’s, not much chance of rain – so unless you live in San Diego, the weather is likely going to be better there than where you live.
