Yes, we are RACE approved for those states that require it. We will be submitting a roster of attendees with their license numbers to the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB) for attendees who track their CE through RACEtrack®. RACEtrack® is a free alternative way for veterinary professionals to keep track of all completed CE.

Each day includes 5 hours of CE that you can attend. If you attend the entire conference, you could receive 20 hours for the DVM classes. For the technician/staff program on Saturday & Sunday, there would be a total of 10 hours.

The Grand Sandestin and Hotel Effie are the closest locations to the Baytowne Conference Center. They are attached and are less than a 5 minute walk to the conference center.

The Village and other Grand Complex buildings, including Lasata, Bahia, or Elation buildings are a 3-5 minute walk from the conference center.

All other locations will require transportation in order to reach the Baytowne Conference Center. Sandestin offers tram service between all Sandestin properties.
