COVID-19 Update

VetPartners is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19.   The health and safety of our members is paramount.  As we evaluate how this ever-changing situation impacts our organization and our future plans, we must consider and comply with both federal and state travel and gathering guidelines and determine whether the Mid-Year meeting can proceed this August.  As always, we will keep members updated as developments occur.
At this time, we ARE proceeding with plans to hold an in-person meeting August 25-27, 2020 in Kansas City. However, the Program Committee is also working on developing a contingency plan in the event that an in-person meeting is not advisable. We will update you as the situation evolves.
