About BIG Ideas

CVMA holds BIG Ideas Forums twice a year—spring and fall. The conferences are vital to the health of CVMA because they bring the association’s members and leadership together to:

    • Explore issues relevant to veterinary medicine in Colorado
    • Identify desired outcomes
    • Develop recommendations for board consideration
    • Review progress on action plans, and build community

So you might be asking, “What’s it all about? Why should I attend?” Each conference has a dedicated focus where we tackle important subjects that span all practice types and look at emerging issues that affect the veterinary profession. We carefully select the discussion leaders, inviting the best and brightest to share their knowledge, insight, and expertise with our members.

Another reason to participate is that you have direct access to CVMA leadership and issues, and can help guide CVMA, generating ideas that direct our continuing education offerings, shape our position on legislative and regulatory issues, and lead to task forces or work groups for specific issues we decide to pursue.

BIG Ideas Forum takes place on a Saturday and consists of four hours of continuing education (The Issues Forum), Commission meetings, and a Leadership Council meeting (which all voting members are encouraged to attend), wrapping up around 6:00 PM to allow everyone the chance to head home rather than spend the night.
