Forward Booking WORKS!

Beginning on April 15, 2017 through May 15, 2017, we have an exciting opportunity for you to promote to your members who have stepped up to the challenge and are participating in forward booking appointments.

Our Forward Booking WORKS! Testimonial Contest is open to veterinary practices in the United States and Canada through the 45 participating veterinary medical associations that are officially executing the Ready. Set. Go! Forward Booking Campaign. These testimonials will be used by participating VMAs to highlight the success of forward booking and to encourage additional veterinary hospitals to incorporate this tool into their protocols.

Through a generous grant from the Partners for Healthy Pets, VMAE is able to offer $12,500 in prizes for the very best testimonials we receive. The prizes are as follows:

  • $2,500 First Prize (1 awarded)
  • $1,000 Second Prize (5 awarded)
  • $500 Honorable Mention (10 awarded)

Written Testimonials are limited to 500 words or less and submitted to Video Testimonials can be either 30 seconds or 60 seconds in length. Video links will be sent to All submissions are due by May 15 and will be judged by the VMAE Taskforce on Practice Management. Winners will receive notification on June 1 and all participants will be thanked for their testimonials. Winning testimonials will be available on the VMAE website for your use to download and use in your communications.
