VPMA becomes VMG
SPVS president Brian Faulkner and outgoing VMG president Renay Rickard opened the 2018 congress.

Rebrand reflects the association’s diverse membership

The Veterinary Practice Management Association (VPMA), announced its change of name to the Veterinary Management Group (VMG) at the joint SPVS/VMG conference in Newport last weekend (25-27 January).

Outgoing president, Renay Rickard, and incoming president Julie Beacham, explained that the change had been driven by the association’s increasingly diverse membership.

Their aim is to be inclusive and cater for the needs of anyone with an interest in management, through development and support.  

The group’s new identity includes a logo, incorporating the strap-line, Learn, Share, Grow.

More information about the VMG can be found on their new website www.vetmg.com
