We couldn't do what we do without the generous support each year of our Workshop sponsors, member support partners and trade exhibitors.
There is high demand for products and services that support AMOs in the field. AMOs show keen interest in new, innovative or helpful Animal Management products and services.

AIAM Position Statement Update
The AIAM Committee has over time developed Position Statements on important topics for the industry. These have included Urban Animal Management in Disaster Planning, Barking Dogs and Permanent Identification Devices and are available to Members through the Resources tab on the AIAM website.
The Committee has recently reviewed the Position Statement on Managing Dog Aggression in the Community and is looking for feedback prior to its adoption at the Annual General Meeting being held in Darwin in October this year.
Firstly, the name has been updated to bring it more in line with the outcomes that we all want - Reducing dog bites to humans in the community. The body, intention and direction of the content has also been updated incorporating new learnings through Mr Jim Crosby M.S. CBCC-KA, our Keynote Speaker from Florida USA at the 2017 Workshops held in Caroline Springs, Victoria.
At the Workshops Jim provided a rare insight into further investigation techniques and best practice for data capture formats with a focus on dog bite prevention.
As your representatives, your feedback is important to us. Comments and suggestions can be emailed to the President by Friday, 31 May 2019.
Please feel free to share other topics that you’d like a national position on.
#G2Z2019 Call for Abstracts are open
G2Z are pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts for the 8th National G2Z Summit are open.
The theme for the 2019 Summit is Beyond The Shelter.
It will focus on the latest programs, practices and strategies that engage the community to effectively influence intake and achieve positive outcomes for our shelter and pound facilities.
We seek answers to questions such as:
- What can we do to prevent intake?
- How can we reduce the numbers of homeless cats and dogs and the concerns the community has about them?
- How can we keep people and their pets together?
- How can companion animal management and sheltering be looked at from a broader perspective?
- How can we empower owners, carers and those without pets to be a part of the solutions?
If you have some answers to these questions through your own programs and innovations, we are now accepting abstracts for the 8th National G2Z Summit.
Other topics relating to community welfare, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership will also be investigated and addressed.
The closing date for abstract submissions is 7/4/19.
View the guidelines for abstract submission here.
