Seminar Handouts
We will continue the process of having seminar handouts available only for those members who have paid the $50 fee to receive the notes and for guests that have the notes included in their registration fees. You must present your name badge to receive a copy of the handout. If you decide at the meeting that you wish to purchase the notes for the remainder of the program year, please do so at the registration table. You may also print the notes from our website. We will also send members the notes by email the week prior to the seminar.

Remote Viewing Sites
Please remember that we have many simulcast sites open to DC Academy members. Unfortunately, our Annapolis Junction site has closed. The sites are located in the following towns: Dover, DE; Washington, DC; Baltimore, Bowie, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Waldorf, MD; Leesburg, Winchester, and Yorktown, VA; Morgantown, WV. You must renew your DC Academy membership before September 1 to attend at a remote site as there is no walk-in registration at remote sites. DC Academy members may attend at no charge at simulcast sites, but members must pre-register by sending an email with their name and site they wish to attend by 5:00 pm Monday prior to the seminar. The intention of setting up group viewing simulcasts is to foster the collegial nature of our seminars. If you have any questions about the simulcasts, please contact Larry Koffer or 703-733-0556.

October 5 Seminar
The seminar on October 5, 2017 is on Physical Therapy / Rehab and will be presented by Deborah Gross, DPT, MSPT, DABPTS, Wizard of Paws Physical Rehabilitation.

Job Board Postings
In order to expedite the placement of classified notices on the seminar bulletin boards and on the classified section of the website, please send your notices prior to the seminar. This insures that the correct wording is on both the bulletin board and the website. We will not be able to accept notices for immediate posting during the seminar.

President’s Column

Happy 60th Anniversary DC Academy! I feel truly honored to be the president of such an incredible organization that has helped me professionally and personally during our diamond year.

I hope this note finds you well, relaxed and recharged from a fun summer. I know one of the highlights for me was going to our Social at Nats Park with academy and my family. I mean what is better than watching Zimmerman's record home-run while my daughter eats blue cotton candy? Special thanks to our Sponsors PRN Pharmacal, Trupanion Pet Insurance and VetCor and of course to Larry for planning such a stellar event.

Our program committee has done a terrific job of lining up an outstanding schedule for us. Please take the time to thank Drs. Suzanna Cavadel, Amanda Hanna-Landis and Amy Mohl for providing us with such an exciting year. It all starts on September 7th with Dr. Howard Steim III lecturing on surgery.

This year we will be rolling out two new programs, one about mentorship and the other about mental health support. Please stay tuned for more information in the future.

Our practice management series and our technician series are just around the corner so don't forget to sign up.

Looking forward to catching up with those of you I know in just a few short weeks and getting to know the rest of you. Please share your thoughts with me and the rest of the board, we look forward to another great year of DC Academy.

Technician Seminar Series
It is time to register your technicians for the 2017-2018 DC Academy Technician Seminar Series. By registering for all four of the seminars at a cost of $115, there is a savings of $145 over the individual seminar cost of $65. If a technician can only attend two of the seminars, there is still a savings by registering for the entire series. Please download, complete and return the form and return it before September 20, 2017 to take advantage of the series discount. The first technician seminar on Feline Critical Care is on Wednesday, October 4.

Note: We have three technician remote viewing sites for 2017-2018: Rockville (The Hope Center), Leesburg (The Life Centre) and Winchester (VVERC). Please check out the technician section of the website for more information.
