AAHA seminar to examine practice culture

Registration has opened for the American Animal Hospital Association’s newest veterinary practice management program, which will focus on practice culture, human resources and digital marketing.

The intermediate-level program, part of AAHA’s Veterinary Management Series, will take place Oct. 4 to 7 at the Hampton Inn Denver West Federal Center in Lakewood, Colorado, a few blocks from AAHA’s headquarters.

Much of the emphasis will be on practice culture.

“At AAHA, we know that a strong culture is essential to running a successful practice,” said AAHA’s chief executive officer, Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP.

“It became clear that practice culture, human resources and digital marketing were topics our members wanted more education on at a much deeper level, and we felt there was a strong need for a dedicated practice management program that focused on these topics,” Dr. Cavanaugh said.

The program facilitators are:

  • Stith Keiser, CEO of Blue Heron Consulting
  • Derek Nagy, MBA, business manager of My Veterinary Career
  • Kerry Plemmons, MBA, an entrepreneur, executive consultant and professor at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business
  • Bill Schroeder, founding owner of InTouch Practice Communications

Thirty continuing education hours will be awarded to the program’s participants.

Early registration pricing of $895 for AAHA members and $1,095 for nonmembers is available through Sept. 9 at http://bit.ly/2vlXBY5.
