Have you come to a VMG Regional Meeting yet?

As a membership organisation, we are lucky to have a regional infrastructure that exists throughout the country to provide a forum for education, networking and the exchange of ideas.

A network of enthusiastic Regional Organisers (RO’s) maintain contact with members and run meetings locally which attract members and non-members, from all walks of practice life. Anyone who is interested in veterinary practice management is welcome to attend!

Regional meetings are often free to attend for VMG members. Why not come along and get updated and enjoy meeting other members in an informal environment? Topics include everything from finance to people management, customer service to legal matters. Have a look at what’s coming up below.

Regional Roadshow 2019!

Our plans for 2019 are still a little embryonic but, following an excellent and energy-packed Regional Organisers meeting at VMG-SPVS Congress 2019 we are currently developing the idea of a full one-day course of CPD lectures and networking for each region, with topics informed by our ever popular New to Management series, and our regional members themselves! We aim to run these 16 ‘VMG Days’ in summer 2019. We are hoping to use quality venues and provide a really valuable day out of practice for our members.

The RO’s are co-ordinated by our overall Regional Co-ordinator Cath Grimsey

“I feel that the VMG regions are an important part of the organisations development, as they help ensure that the membership is represented and grown at a local level. Please feel free to contact me at office@vetmg.com about issues you’d like to discuss at regional level. If you want to get involved in organising and co-hosting regional meetings, i’d love to hear from you too!”

Look through the table below to find out more about what’s going on in your part of the world and follow the links to sign up to your next regional meeting!

Check out your own regions’ page to learn more about your Regional Organiser (RO).

If you would like to help with a region or would like to consider becoming a Regional Organiser, please contact the VMG office at office@vetmg.com. Please see page  ‘The Role of a Regional Organiser’ for more information on what it entails.

Please note that this is a voluntary role and you need to be a VMG Member.

“Our thanks to all the current ROs for their continuing help and support!” Cath
