The VHMA’s 2020 Annual Meeting & Conference is a progressive and engaging conference that tackles new and emerging issues in practice management and highlights theories, strategies, resources, and opportunities that will inspire managers to…Think. Believe. Dream. Do.

The comprehensive program covers a broad range of topics. Participants will be encouraged to think strategically about career development, understand the importance of believing in self and applying that assurance to professional growth and success, discover strategies to achieve career dreams, and most importantly, learn to do better by managing more effectively, working smarter, focusing on details and supporting yourself, the team, and the practice.

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 2020 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.

Software User Groups: Software User Groups offered for AVImark, Cornerstone, eVetPractice, and ImproMed. Registration for this post-conference workshop is required, no additional cost.

We remain hopeful that the 2020 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.
