Annual Meeting Task Force Feedback
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
The ACVP Annual Meeting is an important event for our College as it provides outstanding opportunities for continuing education and networking for our membership. The meeting has not been critically reviewed in over a decade, so in mid-2016, a Task Force was assembled to thoroughly evaluate the Meeting. The results of this evaluation and the Task Force recommendations were presented and discussed at the ACVP Town Hall at the 2017 Annual meeting in Vancouver.
At that time, one of the recommendations of the Task Force was to rotate the meeting through 4-5 cities. This recommendation was clearly not favorable to the majority of the individuals attending the Town Hall and therefore will not be implemented.
The other major change that was recommended was to shorten the meeting and eliminate the free Monday afternoon. In this proposed scenario, the Meeting will run from Saturday to Tuesday night, with the Presidents reception remaining on Tuesday night to conclude the Meeting. In addition to these recommendations, several other changes were proposed.
The presentation delivered at the Town Hall is available for your review and comment here. Our Annual Meeting is a vital part of our College, and your feedback is crucial to make it the best it can be. We are looking for your constructive feedback, and welcome all comments on the proposed changes. Please select Add Comment to provide your feedback here by end of business, Friday February 16th, 2018.
