Convention_Testimonials_0517_Blog_300x300If you are a recent veterinary school graduate and have not attended AVMA Convention since graduating, the AVMA has an offer you won’t want to miss out on: free registration to attend AVMA Convention 2017 in Indianapolis July 21-25.

New veterinary school graduates qualify for one complimentary registration to AVMA Convention, to be used any time within five years of graduation. This is in addition to any AVMA Conventions you may have attended while still in veterinary school. That means if you graduated between 2012 and 2016 and haven't used your free registration offer at a previous AVMA Convention, you can attend this year’s conference absolutely free!

If you are a 2012 graduate and haven’t already taken advantage of this benefit, this is your last year to do so. Head over to avmaconvention.org now so you don’t miss out on this great benefit!

AVMA Convention 2017: Great for work

AVMA Convention 2017 is the place to be for veterinarians of all disciplines looking to stay abreast of the latest advancements, trends and developments in veterinary medicine. You’ll hear from the best and the brightest on topics that matter most to you as a recent grad. New this year, you can attend four hours of specialized Early Career CE sessions, where you’ll learn how to:

  • Excel at negotiating your next employment contract.
  • Discover new strategies to manage your career.
  • Explore other career opportunities in veterinary medicine.
  • Find new approaches to safeguard your personal well-being.

With five days of education sessions, the opportunity to earn more than 40 hours of CE credit, hands-on lab demonstrations, and an exhibit hall full of state-of-the-art products and solutions, this year’s AVMA Convention holds something for everyone.

Remember, your free registration benefit must be used within your first five years post-graduation. So if you are a 2012 graduate who has not used this benefit, don’t let the opportunity pass you by.

For recent graduates who already have taken advantage of your free registration and would like to join us again this year in Indianapolis, there are plenty of other ways to save.

AVMA Convention 2017: Great for play

The conference also offers exciting, fun opportunities to network with other professionals and build valuable relationships that can make a huge impact in your career. For example, you won’t want to miss our Young Professionals Event, where you can explore the NCAA Hall of Champions while enjoying food and drinks with your peers, and don’t forget to see the Gin Blossoms live at the Sunday night concert.

In addition to special events at the convention, Indianapolis is an exciting city that offers a wealth of culture and fun. The New York Times just featured it in an article showcasing some of its attractions and reminding readers that there is much more on offer than the annual Indy 500 race. Join us there July 21-25 to see for yourself! Visit avmaconvention.org to register today and start planning your trip!


*A special note for 2017 graduates: If you just graduated this year and are an AVMA member, you can attend AVMA Convention 2017 for free and cash in on the above offer at another AVMA conference within the next five years.
