Olympia Veterinary Hospital Manager's Group
Contact: Julie Rodenberg, CVPM, WVPMA President e-mail
For meeting dates, location and times: The 3rd Thursday of the month, sometimes the 4th Thursday, from 1-3 pm.
This group was started by Olympia Pet Emergency to bring together the primary vet hospitals that support our emergency hospital. The intent was for the the managers to have collegiality, be able to gain insight from each other, provide additional support, and continuing education. Our meeting locations change monthly and are held at different local restaurants in the Olympia area. We try to rotate between a speaker and round table discussions each month. We have discussions regarding inventory, management issues, hiring, finance, marketing, etc. We would love to grow this group and welcome all practice managers or DVM's. Elanco has graciously elected to sponsor and support us while providing lunch to our group each month.
