Members of the Governing Council and the Executive Committee of ARPAS have been busy the past few months taking on a number of issues and challenges.
The item that has occupied most of our time is our publishing agreement with Elsevier. We are starting the fourth year of our agreement with Elsevier to publish Applied Animal Science.

Reporting Continuing Education Units (CEU)
Reporting of continuing education units (CEUs) is made simple through the ARPAS website. Just log on to www.arpas.org and click on "Submit CEUs." Not only is your CEU record instantly updated when you enter your meetings online, but the system also keeps a convenient submission history in case you wish to check your past entries. What if you do not see a meeting you want to report on the approved list? No problem! You can submit any meeting to be approved and posted on the list before you enter it online. Remember, 16 CEUs are required each year to maintain your registration, and up to 16 CEUs can be carried over to the following year.

The February and April issues of Applied Animal Science (AAS) (https://www.appliedanimalscience.org), volume 35, are online and ready for your consumption!
It is hoped that the name change to Applied Animal Science from The Professional Animal Scientist will attract new and more authors from the global animal science community and serve a broader spectrum of readers in the ever-changing landscape of animal science and production systems. Additionally, with the name change, notable changes were made to the Policies and Instructions for Authors (https://www.appliedanimalscience.org/inst-auth). Key changes include new Science and Application categories to help define the scope and table of contents of the journal, use of a new structured abstract format to give busy ARPAS readers a succinct encapsulation of each article, and the “Applications” section to summarize and emphasize how the information can be applied in animal production and science.
