Poke your veterinary practice manager to enter these contests!
Veterinary Economics and the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association want to hear about your stellar practice manager (and reward them too).
Practice Manager of the Year award
Does your veterinary practice manager go above and beyond? We want to know about it. Nominations are open for the 2015 Veterinary Economics Practice Manager of the Year Award, sponsored by VPI-Nationwide. The contest is open to anyone 18 or older and it's easy to enter. Head to dvm360.com/PMOY and nominate your manager-or yourself-by filling out the simple nomination form, no later than March 1, 2015. Tell us why they're a great leader ... an innovative collaborator ... someone who always keeps their cool and adapts to change ... and the Veterinary Economics staff will take it from there.
At stake? Besides bragging rights, the winning manager will receive a full registration to 2015 CVC Kansas City, travel and lodging to the conference and an invitation to serve on the editorial advisory board of either Veterinary Economics or Firstline magazine for one year. For more information visit dvm360.com/PMOY.
Emerging leaders program
Veterinary practice managers are also invited to enter the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association's (VHMA) Emerging Leaders Program, in which two applicants will be selected for a two-year program designed for managers to refine and enhance their professional development. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2015.
The two candidates will receive an annual scholarship of $2,500, which can be applied to VHMA Annual Meeting and Conference registration and travel costs, the Certified Veterinary Practice Management (CVPM) credential process and the CVPM preparation workbook.
Applicants must be VHMA members in good standing, age 40 or younger at the time of application, and have been employed as a manager for at least three of the last seven years. They must also have acquired 18 college semester hours in management-related courses, 48 hours of CE credits, submit four letters of recommendation as well as a 750-word management article that focuses on their biggest challenge as a practice manager. Applicants must also complete and submit a CVPM application by March 1, 2015. Additional information can be found at vhma.org.
