2020 AETA & CETA/ACTE Joint Virtual Convention

American Embryo Transfer Association (AETA) and
Canadian Embryo Transfer Association (CETA/ACTE)

October 6-7, 2020


The AETA and CETA/ACTE have been closely monitoring the evolving situation related to COVID-19. Unfortunately, we must announce that the 2020 joint convention in Madison, Wisconsin, has been cancelled. Although an in-person meeting is no longer a safe or feasible option, we are excited to announce that we will deliver the content on a virtual platform. This content will be designed to meet the continuing education requirements for members. We are also exploring options that allow sponsor and vendor participation that is meaningful to all.

AETA staff and leadership are currently working through details to support this transition, and we will share updates via the AETA and CETA/ACTE websites and email notifications.

We thank our members and our sponsors for their patience. Please contact a board member with any questions or concerns and look for updates about our 2020 AETA and CETA/ACTE joint virtual convention.

Dr. Matt Dorshorst, AETA President
Dr. Luc Besner, CETA/ACTE President

Convention Session Information

The convention will feature two types of sessions: keynote addresses and prerecorded sessions.

Keynote addresses will be live sessions via Zoom, where participants will see the content and interact with the speakers in real time. Once the keynote addresses have concluded, a link to the content will be posted.

Prerecorded sessions will be made available via a link on the AETA convention page at 12:01 am (CDT) on Tuesday, October 6. During the times on the schedule, speakers will be available to chat via Zoom about their presentations and answer any questions you may have.

All sessions will have a quiz that participants must participate in and pass with a score of at least 70% to receive continuing education (CE) credits (see below).

Please note that speakers will only be available for discussion during their scheduled time. Participants who register before October 6th can view sessions and take the accompanying RACE quizzes until December 31st.

You must register before October 6th to get access to the meeting content.

Continuing Education

The scientific program of the 2020 AETA and CETA/ACTE Joint Virtual Convention has been submitted for 14 CE hours but approval is still pending from RACE. Please check back for more information.

Please note that due to the nature of the virtual annual meeting, participants will earn CE credits per session that they view and quiz (you must pass by answering at least 70% of the questions correctly). A quiz link will be available on the AETA convention page for each session.

NOTE: If all sessions are viewed and each quiz is passed with at least a 70% score, the total number of CE hours/credits obtained would be (pending RACE approval):
14 for AETA members (including the AETA certification session)
12 for CETA/ACTE members

For AETA and CETA/ACTE Certification purposes, the 2020 AETA & CETA/ACTE Joint Virtual Convention will equal 10 CE credits.
