Leadership development opportunity available for recent grads, emerging leaders

Do you know a colleague with leadership potential – or are you interested in developing your leadership skills so you can take an active role in the future of the AVMA and organized veterinary medicine?

The AVMA is offering a year-long Future Leaders Program to identify and develop volunteer leaders for the AVMA and other organized veterinary groups. Open to anyone who has graduated from veterinary school within the last 15 years, this pilot program will bolster leadership and problem-solving skills related to organized veterinary medicine.

Up to 10 participants will be chosen to take part in various leadership and project management training exercises, working with a professional facilitator, and to work together on one focused project impacting organized veterinary medicine. Details about the program, including participation requirements and nomination forms, are available on the AVMA website at: http://www.avma.org/services/AVMAFutureLeadersProgram.asp.
