2023 Power of 10 Class Wants YOU!

ATTENTION 2014-2023 Graduates


Are you ready to be a leader in your profession?


We want YOU for our 2023 Power of 10 Class!


The LVMA is excited to bring back the Veterinary Medical Association Executives' (VMAE) Power of 10 (P10) Leadership Development Program to veterinarians who have graduated during or after 2014. The purpose of the program is to engage and develop recent graduates with foundational skills in leadership, communication, and business.


P10 Benefits

Power of 10 Participants will:

  • Work with a network of supporting peers with similar challenges
  • Provide recent graduates with a learning experience that will benefit the individual (and the VMA, their practice, and their community)
  • Develop fundamental understanding of leadership skills, personal branding, and emotional intelligence
  • Gain understanding of communication styles and skills to enrich the veterinarian-client patient interaction


How P10 Works

Applications for the LVMA's 2023 Power of 10 Program are available now. Applications will be accepted through July 21, 2023. Selection of participants for 2023 will occur by July 24, 2023.
