November President’s Notes
The holidays are in full swing now that Halloween is behind us. Has anyone noticed that Christmas decor arrived November 1? Before I could partially recover from the chocolate coma, I heard Christmas music in the grocery store.
November marks the 10th (and final) CE event for the TCVMA this year. We have had a great year with presentations from oncology, internal medicine, surgery, and most recently, GI disease. I would like to again thank all of our sponsors this year. Because of you, we were able to bring new information and technologies to our members as well as support our college scholarship programs so we can invest in our future colleagues.
Speaking of the future, we introduced this last month but I wanted to take a moment to discuss the exciting changes coming your way next year. The TCVMA is partnering with the Dallas and Collin county VMAs to bring you options for more CE in 2024. You may still pay the TCVMA dues for the year with access to up to 25 hours of continuing education. But you can also upgrade that membership to a platinum level for access to the continuing education presented by the DCVMA and CCVMA. This will provide access to up to 79 hours of continuing education for 2024. Additionally, we are introducing a hybrid meeting where you can attend in person or online in real time.
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul so, for November, we have Dr. Ratner from the Animal Ophthalmology Clinic speaking. Dr. Ratner completed her residency with the Animal Ophthalmology Clinic, passed her board exams, and became a new mom this past year. She has been extremely helpful to me personally when I was presented with an ophthalmological emergency in the last few years and I greatly appreciate her insight in those cases (pun intended). I hope to see all of you there at 7:30 pm on November 16.
