Reserve Your Spot for NABR’s Upcoming Webinar!

Interest in NABR's next webinar, "The 2015 USDA Inspection Data: Reporting from a Different Perspective," has surpassed our expectations and we're already approaching record attendance. Space is becoming very limited so please register ASAP if you have not done so already.

"The 2015 USDA Inspection Data: Reporting from a Different Perspective," scheduled for Tuesday, January 12, 2016 will provide new details on the USDA's inspection process.

Each year, NABR analyzes the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal Care Inspection System database to review the inspection results for the previous years. This year, however, NABR’s experts were unable to conduct their yearly review as the key export function utilized in the past was no longer functional. This led to a thorough review of all inspection reports with citations and in that effort NABR’s team gained a new insight into the inspection process.

In “The 2015 USDA Inspection Data: Reporting from a Different Perspective,” NABR will share with you these new observations and provide valuable information that will help you in managing your own animal care and use program.

Space is limited for this webinar and will likely run out quickly so please register ASAP!

Reserve your spot today to join us on January 12, 2016!
