A Note From the CEO

In the past few weeks, I participated in the Veterinary Innovation Summit, Banfield Pet Healthcare Summit, and CATalyst Council annual meeting, all excellent forums to discuss and brainstorm on the leading issues of the day: talent shortage, wellbeing, DEI, increasing access to care, and best use of technology to relieve stress on veterinary professionals and practices. Even as we celebrate the holiday season, Tesha and I are hard at work planning for our VLC events and ThinkWORKS, which will feature a policy forum on the issues affecting your organizations and members. And we will be in touch in early 2023 to learn about our members’ needs, which VMAE products and services you value most, and best practices we can share with each other.
