New Veterinary Student Organization Receives National Award

February 7, 2007

KNOXVILLE - The national Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA) has recognized the newly founded VBMA chapter at The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine as its best new chapter. The announcement was made at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Jim Taylor, president of the UT chapter of V BMA and third year veterinary student, says the chapter was recognized for its speaker selection and quality meetings. "We were able to host excellent speakers at our chapter meetings and promote them well. We also requested feedback from our audience and catered to our members’ requests regarding speakers and topics," Taylor says. He adds Hill's Pet Nutrition has been instrumental in making the organization a success, "Without their support, none of this would have been feasible."

The Veterinary Business Management Association is a student driven organization dedicated to advancing the profession through increasing business knowledge, creating networking opportunities, and empowering students to achieve their personal and professional goals.
