Continuing Education Update
Plans for the fall conference, Connect 2020, have shifted virtually.
We will now be hosting three separate CE conferences (Small Animal, Large Animal, and Public Health/Wellness) over the next six months.
The first, the Small Animal Conference, was held Oct. 5-8. The second, A Public Health + Wellness Virtual CE Webinar Series, is planned for Nov. 17-19. And the last of the three, the Large Animal CE will be held during its traditional timeframe in January.
We have been working individually with each reunion class (years '85, '90, '95, '00, '05, '10, and '15) to create virtual reunions specific to each class. Each event will be as personalized and as special as possible, including slideshows and themes (e.g., game night, happy hour, etc.), if class members wish.
All reunion classes will be invited to attend next year's in-person events (fingers crossed) for a special focus on your class. Consider it a yearlong-plus party!
For more information or event dates, please contact Amy Winemiller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome Notes from Alumni to Students
Over the past two years, we have been collecting handwritten notes from alumni to be placed in the White Coat pockets of the incoming first-year DVM class at its "White Coat Ceremony." This year, unfortunately, an in-person ceremony will not be held, so we are collecting virtual notes.
From alumni to students of ALL degree programs, please consider writing a message to welcome a student to the VMCVM and the professions of public health and veterinary medicine. We cannot think of a better way to be welcomed into our professions than a personal note and positive message from an alumnus or alumna of the college. Feel free to leave your name and contact information, if you like!
