Our Spring 2018 New York State Veterinary Conference in Tarrytown was a wonderful event. Thanks to all who helped to make it a success.
 
The Conference Committee has decided to step back from this conference format in order to re-evaluate our offerings.
 
There are already some fabulous CE opportunities in Westchester/Rockland, Long Island and New York City delivered throughout the year by our affiliated regional associations.  Visit https://nysvms.site-ym.com/events/event_list.asp.
 
We want to supplement those with some truly unique and innovative educational experiences in partnership with Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. The current format takes all our energies and we want to redivert that into something that is harder to experience in other venues. This may be some shorter but more focused events that feature more engagement with the content in a way to enhance the effectiveness of learning.
 
Meanwhile we also have more energy to take the Ithaca conference to new heights. The newly refurbished facility is a beautiful venue for a conference, and we will continue to develop that as an event that will be well worth the travel wherever you are in the State.
 
Thank you for all your support of the Westchester Spring Conferences. We are delighted that for a few years we gave people a valuable experience and look forward to serving you even better in future.
