Our practitioner groups provide education in business topics important for professional career development to equine practitioners in their first ten years of practice, or first ten years of practice ownership and offer an opportunity to form a network of their peers for ongoing support.
Regional groups of 20-25 members are formed from veterinarians seeking networking opportunities with peers; interested in career development; and wishing to attain additional business education. Members are recruited from equine veterinarians in their first decade of practice who live within 4-8 hours of the regional meeting location. more
Each regional Decade One group attends two meetings per year, and maintains an ongoing forum for questions and concerns between meetings. Each Decade One group will meet for 3 years (6 meetings).
Members share meals and enjoy time for networking with their peers. more
