Get ready for VHMA’s 2021 Annual Meeting & Conference!

2021 is shaping-up to be the year that VHMA’s members will ReConnect for Success!

Members and colleagues will be invited to meet in-person in Philadelphia to learn about the latest innovations and developments in practice management.

Participants can look forward to an inspiring keynote speaker, sessions led by industry experts, panel discussions, member events, networking opportunities, and onsite interactions with exhibitors, partners, and supporters.

ReConnect for Success is designed to inspire, empower, connect, and recharge veterinary management professionals.

Don't miss out on these opportunities:

VALUE-BASED Pricing Strategies and Tools Workshop: Implementing a pricing strategy isn’t just about deciding what percentage to increase fees by. Value-based pricing takes into account how much value a particular service and the related client experience provide to a pet owner. This workshop will address what we now know about client price expectations and present best practices that are key to implementing an effective pricing strategy. This is a pre-conference event, separate registration and fees apply.

Career Conversations: Ever wish you could talk through career planning with a trusted colleague? At the 2021 Annual Conference, you can! These confidential conversations will allow you to ask questions, request feedback and can yield important insights that will equip you to be more proactive as you grow your career. Registration is required, no additional cost. Participation is limited.

Limited Participation

Unfortunately, due to local policy and guidelines for a safe indoor event, participation will be limited for this year's event to 250 attendees. The schedule and program reflects the needs of a smaller event. As restrictions ease, the VHMA will adjust participation limits and the program accordingly.

Safe Learning Environment

VHMA will follow CDC and local guidelines to ensure we are offering a safe learning environment. Meeting spaces will be set to allow for appropriate social distancing and masks are required for all indoor events.

Here is what to expect during your stay at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel

Risk-free Registration

Over the next several months, the VHMA will be closely monitoring COVID-19 developments. We remain hopeful that the 2021 Annual Meeting & Conference will proceed as scheduled, however, we cannot predict what the world will be like in September. Should VHMA need to cancel the event to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its members, registrants will be notified immediately and will receive a full refund of the registration fee or can opt to have the fee applied to a future VHMA event.
