Be a Poster Judge!

We hope you will be joining us in Toronto for the 43rd Annual CVAA Conference.  We are finalizing all the details for an exceptional line-up of speakers, presentations and activities.  One such detail is the judging panel for the Poster Presentations. This year we have an exciting lineup of submissions and we are looking for 4 - 6 CVAA members to join our judging panel. Participation in this panel can be used toward your CVAA recertification points. You must be planning to attend the conference.

The judging will take place in two ways:

  • Before the conference, judges will be able to view PDF versions of the posters on their own time
  • During the conference between 9:30am – 11:00am on Thursday April 26 during Exhibitor/Poster Presentation time where authors will be able to present during this time

We will require that you evaluate the posters and presentations based on a consistent criteria form that will be provided to you and submit your comments and selections for first, second and third place recipients. 

Please respond via email by 
Friday March 23, 2018 if you are interested in becoming involved in this way.

Thank you!!

We're pleased to let you know that CVAA is participating in an online knowledge sharing network called Sosido ( Sosido was created for and by healthcare associations, to speed knowledge transfer, promote collaboration, highlight the important work and research by members, and bridge silos by publicizing the contributions of each specialty group to the broader healthcare community. CVAA joins a growing network of associations and research groups on Sosido, including the Canadian Association of Nurses in Oncology (CANO).

CVAA members will receive:

  • - A weekly email digest summarizing all activity in the CVAA community. You don’t have to log in to participate, and anything that’s important will come to your inbox, including:

  • - Updates on all publications authored by CVAA members that week. Sosido automatically delivers a current and complete snapshot of the work of our CVAA community.

  • - A summary of new articles released that week from journals chosen by you.

  • - Access to a secure CVAA members-only forum to ask and answer questions.

(Watch a slide tour of Sosido.)

Please note that you can unsubscribe from emails or remove yourself from the network at any time.

We look forward to staying in touch with you through the CVAA community on Sosido, and we welcome your questions and feedback.
