Leadership development goes virtual

The AVMA’s Veterinary Leadership Conference is the premier event for veterinary leadership training, and strong leadership is needed now more than ever. Moving to a virtual format in 2021 to ensure the health and safety of attendees, the conference will still offer a unique mix of CE sessions, AVMA governance meetings, and networking.

Whether you consider yourself a seasoned leader or you’re just beginning to explore what a leadership role in our profession might mean for you, VLC 2021 will develop and hone your leadership skills. You’ll also see first-hand how the AVMA does business, and learn about current hot topics in veterinary medicine.
