CVC San Diego
CVC-San Diego conference is this weekend, December 9-11. VIN will be hosting a cybercafé at CVC and VINx-eVetSites can be found in the exhibition hall at booth 328. We hope all of our members attending have a great time and encourage you to stop by and learn a little more about VINx and eEvetSites, part of the VIN family!

We have two more Rounds sessions before taking a break for the holidays.

Winter VTNE Preparation Class
Are you planning on taking the VTNE (Veterinary Technician National Examination) during the March-April 2017 window? This VSPN CE course is designed to provide a comprehensive review for those taking the exam. Students and recent graduates may qualify for a 50% discount.
Note: This class does not guarantee passage of the exam; we will approach as many topics as possible in an effort to help the student identify levels of competency as an aid to focus study efforts.
