Western Veterinary Conference starts this weekend and VSPN will be there! VIN will not have the VIN Lounge as we have had in past years, but we will have the VIN Island in the exhibition hall. Stop by booths #4920-4924 to see VSPN Director Charlotte Waack and learn about the VIN Foundation initiative, Support4Support. You can also talk with the folks behind the scenes at VINx and EVetSites.

VSPN will be participating in the WVC Technician Fair, hosted by NAVTA this year. It is a different setup from past tech fairs, but you can stop and see Lisa Kernaghan on Wednesday, March 8 from Noon-3:00pm PT at the WVC Technician Fair (inside the NAVTA Lounge). Lisa will have some VSPN goodies for those that stop by and can answer all questions about VSPN!
