Backyard poultry and bee keeping have been on the upswing for the past five to ten years. With COVID-19, many people have a desire to create food sources in their backyards and have time on their hands for new projects like raising chickens and bees.  Join the VVMA to learn about the birds (chickens) and the bees in two 3-hour CE programs during the weekend when you won't have to take time away from your practice!

Speaker notes and a link to access the CE program on Zoom will be emailed to the address used during online registration a few days before the program is held.  Link to recorded program will be emailed the day after the live-streamed event. No printed speaker notes will be available.

Not comfortable yet in using online platforms?  
We will have two opportunities to "test" the Zoom platform the week before each program to make it as easy as possible for you:  Wednesday, October 21 at noon, and Thursday, November 5 at noon.  Mark them in your calendar and look to your emails during those weeks for links to the tests.

Reminder:  24 hours of CE are required for licensure renewal on May 31, 2021.  The Vermont Board of Veterinary Medicine has no restrictions on the number of online credits you can earn, and the VVMA is an approved provider of CE content.

We hope to "see" you at this special fall program, and please contact Executive Director Kathy Finnie (kathy@vtvets.org 802-878-6888) if you have any questions.
