Power of Business

An Interactive Program for Veterinarians & their Practice Managers

What can you expect from the Power of Business program?
This program is modeled after our very popular Power of 10 for recent graduates. The Power of Business is designed for any IVMA member – practice owner, possible owner, medical director, or anyone who may want to refresh, recharge, renew their professional lives by learning more to assist with business ownership. The IVMA member early bird rate of $399 runs until July 23, after July 23 the IVMA member rate is $449. This rate includes your plus one, so you can bring your Practice Manager. Lunch is also included in all sessions.

*Note your plus 1 must not be another veterinarian.
In addition to the great content being offered, you will connect with colleagues during the four meetings. Making new connections in your profession is important!

Each and every veterinarian deserves a fulfilling career.

But without the proper foundation, this profession can quickly leave you feeling in over your head… Below are the topics that will be covered.
