Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to be more involved in the Midwest Veterinary Conference? Are you looking for an opportunity to connect with experts in your field, or a chance to impact the future of veterinary medicine? If so, the MVC has a variety of volunteer opportunities you can take advantage of.

Why Volunteer?

As an MVC volunteer, you not only help execute one of the largest veterinary conferences in America, but you also will...

  • Get a free meal: Moderators have access to the Speaker Dining Room on the day(s) they volunteer, and DVMs who participate in Connection Corner will enjoy a complimentary lunch.
  • Have access to networking opportunities: As a moderator, you'll have a chance to connect with speakers of the sessions you volunteer for.
  • Impact future veterinarians: At the Connection Corner, you'll be able to make a difference for students who may someday be your colleagues.
  • Have a chance to win: Moderators will automatically be entered into a drawing to win one of two Columbus sports packages.

Please note, you must be a registered attendee in order to volunteer at the MVC, and signing up to moderate does not automatically register you for the Conference.

Session Moderators

A Session Moderator (formerly Presider) serves as an "ambassador" to one or more speakers. Moderators 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.

How to Participate: Volunteer sign-up for the 2018 MVC will be posted in December 2017.

Connection Corner: Student/DVM Networking Lunch

Connection Corner

Give back to the future of veterinary medicine! OVMA Members from all disciplines of veterinary medicine are invited to participate in the fourth annual Connection Corner: Student/DVM Networking Event on Friday, Feb. 23.

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 business cards; information on their organization, internship and employment opportunities; and any other materials that would introduce students to life as a veterinarian.
