New "Family Friendly" CE Concept - Join Us January 23, 2010

The ISVMA is hosting a continuing education program designed specifically for veterinarians thinking about buying a practice or transitioning into ownership. The program will be held at the Peoria Civic Center on Saturday, January 23, 2010 from 3:00pm-6:00pm.


Ken Ehlen, DVM and Kirsten Poppen, JD, AVA from Simmons & Associates will be our instructors. Come learn about the buying process, cash flow and profitability, and get your questions answered. This interactive session will help you on your path to practice ownership. One of our objectives for the meeting is to begin developing a checklist of items for new owners or those considering ownership to review.


So, what is different? What is the new concept?


We want this to be a family outing! In addition to the quality CE program, we encourage our participants to bring their families. We have coordinated with the Lakeview Museum of Arts & Sciences in Peoria to host spouses and children during the CE program. We will all get back together at the Civic Center (veterinarians and family) at 6:15pm for dinner and then watch a Peoria Rivermen professional hockey game! ISVMA has reserved a block of tickets in the lower bowl so that our families can participate in a social and family-oriented program. We hope this will appeal to our membership demographic most likely to be interested in the educational subject matter.
