Technician Workshop

Hello fellow technicians and VCS members,

It is with great pleasure to announce our upcoming 2023 VCS Annual Conference and Technician Workshop on October 12-14 in Reno, Nevada at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino. Planning is well under way, and we are dedicated to providing a high-quality CE tract for technicians that will encompass 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 grateful to those of you who responded to our call for lecturers earlier this year.  You’ll see from our schedule who will be speaking and on what topics. 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 workshop.

The VCS Annual Conference has always been my favorite conference for cutting edge CE, technician support, networking, and the diverse venue offerings. It is with great pleasure that I get to take part as your 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 Spring and look forward to meeting all of you in Reno in October. It’s going to be a blast that you won’t want to miss.
