2024 Annual Conference

October 17-19, 2024

Orlando selected for 2024 Annual Conference

Dear VCS members, partners, and friends,

Howdy cancer fighters! We are excited to announce that we will host the upcoming 2024 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida! After a whirlwind search and site visit by our Executive Director, we have found a beautiful all-suite property in Orlando, FL, not far from any of the amazing theme parks and excitement that is Orlando. The Caribe Royale Orlando will be your beautiful home away from home for a few days.  Recently renovated, this all-suite hotel will be a crowd pleaser for sure.

While the outdoor scenery will be sure to impress, we are equally thrilled about the conference program. We will start out with the highly attended Resident Review Workshop featuring Drs. Cheryl London and Keara Boss.  We will also offer a concurrent pre-conference session we hope fosters a sense of togetherness. Dr. Niccole Bruno, the CEO and founder of blendvet™, will lead a workshop centering on DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging). We feel that this topic is extremely timely, and are excited to participate in dynamic, facilitated conversations and activities that emphasize DEIB’s role in cultivating an inclusive culture in veterinary oncology.

Additionally, we are enthusiastic about the two keynotes, panel discussions, and specialty sessions, as well as other events that will allow us to continue our education and togetherness. The conference website already has a lot of information that you’ll want to check out.  Registration and the hotel block opens on June 3rd, but abstract collection opens much earlier, May 1, so be sure to mark that on your calendar now.

We hope to see all of you (or as many as possible) soon in sunny Florida!

Dr. Brian Flesner and Dr. Zach Neumann
