January 7-9, 2021: AVMA Virtual Veterinary Leadership Conference

The veterinary profession’s premier conference for leadership development moved to a virtual format this year to ensure the health and safety of attendees. VLC will continue to offer a mix of CE sessions, AVMA governance meetings and networking. Attendees can expand and hone leadership skills while connecting virtually with a diverse network of colleagues from all walks of the veterinary profession. This virtual conference will be a fitting opportunity to learn about Leadership in Times of Change. AVMA will support state VMAs and its constituent allied organizations by hosting their leaders in-person during VLC while still maintaining safe guidelines. Hosting an in-person meeting is optional for each state and constituent allied organization, and attending in-person is optional for each leader. For more info, reach out to your State VMA Executive Director or constituent allied organization.
