Finding Time for CE

Seems the world spins faster than ever these days.  Our schedules have become so busy that it is often hard to find time to fit in continuing education.  Since 1999, VetMedTeam's catalog of free and fee-based asynchronous online courses has helped every member of the practice team continue to increase knowledge and update skills.  Membership in VetMedTeam is totally free of charge.  Take a moment to visit VetMedTeam Course Catalog to learn how our online courses can help you meet your CE needs.  Don't forget to check out the 13 free courses!

NAVTA is also pleased to announce that the Continuing Education quizzes in each issue of The NAVTA Journal are available online exclusively through VetMedTeam.  The Spring Journal will be hitting the mail this week, so be on the lookout and visit to get credit for your quiz.
NAVTA Conference Logo
NAVTA is pleased to announce our first annual conference, to be held November 12-14 in Washington, D.C.  The weekend will provide opportunities for networking, learning, and lots of fun!  This conference is open to all members of the veterinary healthcare team, students, and the allied industry.
Information about the conference is available online and a brochure will be included with your Spring issue of The NAVTA Journal.  We hope to see you in Washington, D.C. this fall!
NAVTA is Going Green
We have been working to replace the downloadable forms on our website with online forms.  This not only saves paper and stamps, it makes it easier for you to submit information directly to our office.
We're most excited to be offering our online membership application/renewal form!  You can now complete and submit your NAVTA application or renewal and submit payment, online. 
Other forms currently available online are: 
  • Nomination forms for Veterinary Technician of the Year, SCNAVTA of the Year and Advisor of the Year
  • State Visit and Booth Request Form
  • State Rep, SCNAVTA and Specialty forms for submitting updates to The NAVTA Journal
  • State Rep Contact Update Form
Many of these forms can be found in our new "members only" State Representative Resource Center, with useful information for all NAVTA members.  The main purpose of the Resource Center is to provide information that our state reps can share with members of their state associations.  This information is useful to all NAVTA members, so check it out!
