The AVMA is inviting veterinarians to grow and network with their peers at the 2017 Veterinary Leadership Conference and is offering scholarships to potential attendees.
The meeting provides three days of networking and workshop opportunities designed for veterinarians and other veterinary professionals.
Leadership sessions and networking opportunities provide a foundation for veterinary professionals who want to contribute to and shape the veterinary profession, and develop skills that can be used in professional and personal pursuits.
Selected sessions provide continuing education credits.
Ten scholarships of $1,000 are available for AVMA members interested in developing their leadership potential.
To qualify for the scholarships, applicants must be AVMA members who fall into at least one of these categories:
- Emerging Leader – Individual who graduated from veterinary school within the past 15 years.
- Under-represented in Veterinary Leadership – Veterinarian from a demographic, geographic, or socioeconomic group or practice type that is underrepresented in U.S. veterinary leadership.
The application deadline is November 16, 2016. Recipients will be selected and notified by December 1, 2016.
The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, January 12-14, 2017.
