Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Friends of Veterinary Medicine,

Sponsorship opportunities for 2018 are available. The Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA) holds one of the largest veterinary conventions in the Midwest and is one of the top in the country. Our dedicated Continuing Education and Program Committees together with MVMA staff continue to bring top quality educational speakers to Minnesota as well as a social venue that draws high attendance. In 2018, the MVMA Annual Meeting will be held in Rochester at the New Mayo Civic Center.
