NAVC Teams Up With Technicians Group

Posted: Nov. 8, 2013, 4:40 p.m. EST

Expanding its reach into all things veterinary, the North American Veterinary Community today announced an agreement to assist with the day-to-day operations of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA).

New products and services for veterinary technicians, including webinars, articles, conference lecture tracks and online courses, are expected to arise from the partnership.

The arrangement between the two nonprofit associations frees up people and resources at NAVTA, said Julie Legred, CVT, the technician group’s interim executive director.

"NAVTA will remain its own entity, operate under its same Constitution and bylaws, and continue to work with all sponsors and conferences as they have in the past,” Legred said. "This partnership will now enable NAVTA to offer and provide input into many additional benefits and opportunities for veterinary technicians, while polishing and enhancing the communications and services provided to its members.”

North American Veterinary Community, which hosts the annual NAVC Conference and trade show in Orlando, Fla., last month formed a partnership with Vetstream, a U.K.-based distance-learning company. Continuing education courses presented at the conference and other NAVC programs will be posted online through Vetstream.

NAVC’s 2013-14 president is Lynne E. Johnson-Harris, LVT, RVT, the first veterinary technician to serve in that role.

"By joining forces, we will be able to offer the best in continuing education to all members of the veterinary heath care team, 24/7, fulfilling the mission of both organizations,” she said of the agreement with NAVTA.

Gainesville, Fla.-based NAVC changed its name and identity in February, dropping the longstanding label North American Veterinary Conference and revising its logo.

The makeover is part of a strategic objective to be the leading veterinary community for veterinarians worldwide, said the organization’s CEO, Tom Bohn. He called the NAVTA partnership "a unique model for not-for-profits.”
