The Veterinary Hospital Managers Association is accepting applications until April 30 for the Emerging Leaders Program, which will award $2,500 scholarships to five veterinary management professionals.
Each scholarship will be renewed for two additional years, making the total $7,500. The money must be spent on registration and travel costs to attend the VHMA’s annual conference and on the Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM) certification process.
The program is designed to identify rising stars ages 40 or younger and help them refine their veterinary practice management skills and enhance their professional development.
Applicants must be VHMA members, meet the CVPM program qualifications and submit a 750-word management article.
The five winners will be expected to give back to VHMA through volunteer activities.
More information is available at www.vhma.org.
The VHMA's 2013 Annual Meeting and Conference will take place Sept. 26 to 29 in Charlotte, N.C.
The international organization is based in Alachua, Fla.
