To assist with the requests that we receive for State and Regional VMA conference education, we have put together the following series. Typically, we are a ‘plug and play’ educational resource for our VMA’s and manager groups; that is to say that we assist with sponsorship, secure the venue for the event, interface with the caterers and bring in the speakers. We can provide as little as two hours of education and as much as 6 hours in one day, depending on your needs. Sometimes, vmas will book us on two consecutive nights to reduce travel expense and give veterinarians more flexible time with their schedules. Below is the current 2016 line up of vma conference education, but if you don’t see what you like here, pick something ‘ala carte’ as they say from the main speaking menu.
