The Academy of Veterinary Consultants (AVC) will hold its summer meeting Aug. 2-4, at the airport Embassy Suites in Kansas City, Mo.

Program chairman Larry Moczygemba, DVM, notes that this meeting will lean more heavily toward cow-calf topics and will feature excellent speakers.

“Our program committee goal is to combine continuing education material that you can implement Monday when you return home, as well as the more traditional AVC continuing education model of something to think about on Monday,” Moczygemba explains. “We want to continue to make members aware of industry and political trends, but also balance that with technical material that will be useful to the practitioner.”

AVC President Dave Sjeklocha, DVM, adds that the summer meeting will be a good time for AVC members to hear about and discuss what happened at the historic April AVC meeting in Washington, D.C.
