Technician Workshop

Hello fellow technicians and VCS members,

The end of the year is fast approaching with a new year on the horizon. It is with great pleasure to
announce our upcoming 2023 VTCS workshop on October 12-14 in Reno, Nevada at the Peppermill
Resort. Planning is well under way, and we are dedicated to providing a high-quality CE tract
encompassing the wonderful feedback we received from our technician membership. The conference is
sure to be an exciting, unique, and interactive experience providing both a scientific and practical
education format for technicians of all skill levels. We are also working on a couple of new ideas, so stay
tuned for more exciting news to come.

The call for lecturers has gone out and if you have a passion for teaching and speaking be sure to fill out
our application form as we would love to hear from you. Let’s not forget our case report tract. Do you
have an interesting case you would like to share with us? Consider presenting your case during our

The VCS conference has always been my favourite conference for cutting edge CE, technician support,
networking, and the diverse venue offerings. It is with great pleasure that I get to take part in the 2023
conference as your VTCS program chair. My RVT journey has been a long and diverse one, having
worked in both general and referral practice for many years before transitioning to academia. My true
passion and calling in life were found when I began working in the oncology department at the
Veterinary Medical Center’s teaching hospital in Saskatoon, Canada.

I wish everyone a wonderful upcoming holiday season and look forward to meeting all of you next year
in Reno. It’s going to be a blast that you won’t want to miss.
