Virtual annual meeting, July 30-Aug. 2


In the year prior to the meeting, the college revised the certifying examination; developed new standard operating procedures for delivering the examination; revised the criteria for training program reviews; and produced a remote workshop on hatchery-associated topics using a new learning management site. A manual from the remote workshop is being developed. An ad hoc committee will review and revise the current standards for submitting continuing education for maintenance of certification.
