Future Leaders – Your Time Is Now!

Do you know a colleague with leadership potential? 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?

There’s nothing average about AVMA’s Future Leaders Program. It is a life-changing, meaningful experience for its graduates. This results from the hard work and team commitment throughout the year-long program by the Future Leader participants, assistance from AVMA staff, and the generous support from the program’s sponsors Pfizer Animal Health and High Impact Facilitation. We are proud that this intense program has really transformed our Future Leaders into new levels of leadership while also creating helpful leadership tools for the wider veterinary profession. This is a novel program focused on the Future Leaders collaborating on a team project and also working individually to promote their leadership skills. Still not convinced?

The AVMA is continuing the success of the year-long Future Leaders Program for 2013-2014 with a goal to identify and develop volunteer leaders for the AVMA and other organized veterinary groups. Working with a professional facilitator, 10 participants will take part in various leadership and project management training exercises, and collaborate on one focused project impacting organized veterinary medicine and in alignment with AVMA’s Strategic Goals. See Future Leaders Program nomination information on the AVMA website.
