Connection Corner: Student/DVM Networking Event
Give back to the future of veterinary medicine! OVMA Members from all disciplines of veterinary medicine are invited to participate in the third-annual Connection Corner: Student/DVM Networking Event on Friday, Feb. 21. Enjoy a complimentary lunch with veterinary students, followed by an hour of power networking, during which you can answer questions, discuss available internship or employment opportunities, and be a part of a valuable connection for students entering the veterinary profession. DVM volunteers are encouraged to bring plenty of business cards, information on their practice, internship and employment opportunities, and any other materials that would introduce students to life as a veterinarian.
How to Participate: Thank you for your interest, but we have reached maximum capacity!
A Session Presider serves as an "ambassador" to one or more Speakers. Presiders introduce the speakers of their selected sessions using an introduction prepared by the MVC staff and, in the event of a problem, assist in locating appropriate staff to resolve A/V equipment or room issues.
Advance sign-up ended on Feb. 16. Would you like to see what sessions still need a presider? Please contact Aimee Ruble.
