One of the greatest NBA players of all time, Johnson is now chairman and chief executive officer of Magic Johnson Enterprises, an investment conglomerate that provides high-quality products and services that focus primarily on ethnically diverse and underserved urban communities. Hear how he transferred the skills and tenacity he acquired on the basketball court into a winning formula in the business arena.

This year’s AVMA Convention takes place June 21-25, 2024. The keynote address, sponsored by Hill’s, will happen on Saturday, June 22, at 10 a.m. Central time.

An opportunity to learn, connect, and be inspired

AVMA Convention brings together the whole veterinary community for world-class education, special events, networking opportunities, and camaraderie. Johnson is the latest addition to an all-star lineup of presenters and entertainers who will be part of the event. Another highlight: Grammy award-winning country music duo Brothers Osborne will headline the AVMA concert, treating attendees to the progressive blend of country and rock that has made them six-time Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year and four-time Academy of Country Music Duo of the Year.

The AVMA Convention always offers a chance to catch up with old friends, network with peers, and make new connections that will last a lifetime. As any previous attendee will tell you, the experience will stay with you long after you go home. From Food Festival Friday to the always popular Live Life, Love All party, the full lineup of special events will keep you energized and entertained.

All of those fun events, of course, are in addition to more than 650 hours of high-quality continuing education (CE), with learning opportunities that cater to every veterinary specialty and area of interest.

The full CE schedule is available online, so you can browse sessions and start planning your program today.
