North American Veterinary Conference Expands International Outreach

September 15, 2012

Former North American Veterinary Conference (NAVC) Executive Director, Dr. Colin Burrows, is now NAVC’s Executive Ambassador, International Affairs.

The announcement came from Dr. Gatz Riddell, President of the NAVC Board of Directors. “NAVC is widely respected for its lead role in partnering with other continuing education veterinary organizations in advancing knowledge. In parallel with NAVC’s strong growth plans for US-based activities, it recognizes the growing demand for expertise and knowledge in other countries. Dr. Burrows is perfect for the newly created role. He is recognized on a global level for his expertise in the veterinary and animal health education field. ” Riddell added, “Dr. Burrows’ contribution over the past 29 years has been instrumental in establishing NAVC as the premium worldwide conference in the veterinary field.”

Dr. Burrows stated, “With my increasing leadership responsibilities in the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), this new role at NAVC allows me to bring significant educational value to a larger audience.  We look forward to additional partnerships and collaborations that can advance veterinary medicine on a global scale."

NAVC engaged an acting CEO, Judy Gray. They are recruiting a permanent CEO to be in place by January 2013.

Headquartered in Gainesville, Fla., the NAVC is a nonprofit organization that provides world-class continuing education to all members of the veterinary healthcare team. Held in Orlando each January, the NAVC Conference hosts 16,000 attendees from more than 70 countries, offers 350 speakers and 50 intensive Hands-on Laboratories. It also offers the NAVC Institute, NAVC Expeditions and offers the Clinician’s Briefjournal.
