2014 New York State Spring Veterinary Conference

Join us for the inaugural New York State Spring Veterinary Conference at the Westchester Hilton in Rye Brook, NY, May 16-18! Co-hosted by the New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) and Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, the conference will feature the top-notch CE that has been the hallmark of the annual NYS-VC Fall conference in Ithaca in a location convenient to the Metro New York and tri-state region!

NYS-VC Spring will focus on companion animal medicine with four concurrent medicine and surgery tracks per day with one track for veterinary technicians. In addition to earning 19 CE credits, NYS-VC Spring will provide opportunities to network with your tri-state peers and visit our expanded Exhibit Hall - featuring a variety of vendors devoted to all aspects of veterinary practice. Social events will include a Conference Reception with Exhibitors on Friday evening and the annual Purple Party and Silent Auction on Saturday night – always a highlight of the Fall conference!

Register for the Spring veterinary conference by April 15 to take advantage of discounted early registration fees. If you miss the early bird deadline, you can still avoid the on-site registration fee surcharge by registering online or through the mail before May 2.

If you can’t make the NYS-VC Spring conference, please mark your calendars to attend the 7th Annual NYS-VC Fall conference October 11-12, 2014, in Ithaca, NY. The NYS-VC Fall will feature companion animal, bovine, equine, hobby pig and chicken, and camelid/small ruminant tracks, as well as the annual Conference Celebration dinner.

We look forward to seeing you in Westchester this May and/or in Ithaca in October!
