2015 FAEP President

MillerI’m honored and privileged to be able to greet you with my personal well wishes as we approach the closing of another successful year for your FAEP. I want to extend season’s greetings to you and yours, on behalf of my fellow Council members and the staff of the FAEP/FVMA.

As the equine-exclusive division of the FVMA, the FAEP hosts two major continuing equine education events each year. We are very proud of the outstanding continuing education we provided our members and attendees in 2015. Our Promoting Excellence Symposium (PES) in Naples, FL, set a new record for attendance. We are proud to note that more than 400 equine practitioners from more than 38 states and six countries took advantage of our educationalofferings in 2015!

We want to build on this success in 2016 and plan on making it a productive and fruitful year. We invite you to join us for the 53rd Annual Ocala Equine Conference, from January 22 to 24, 2016. This year’s program offers an in-depth ultrasound imaging wet lab, followed by two days of first-rate lectures by some of the foremost clinicians and experts in the field of equine medicine. We encourage you to register soon, and look forward to welcoming you to Ocala, the “Horse Capital of the World.” We are also busy planning our 12th annual PES scheduled for October 2016 at the amazing El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico…start planning because, you won’t want to miss this outstanding CE offering in this amazing destination!

The FAEP will be advocating for the veterinary profession at the State Capitol during our annual Legislative Action Days from February 27 to 28, 2016. I encourage you to join us in Tallahassee this year. The opportunity to see and participate in the legislative process of our State is both exciting and a great learning experience. Our efforts in 2014 and 2015 resulted in positive outcomes for our profession. We need to work together in our legislative endeavors to have continued success in 2016.

Make your New Years resolution to become involved in your Association! We are actively seeking members to participate on several committees. Please feel free to contact me, other FAEP Council members, or the FVMA office for information. I am happy to be of service to you and to our great profession.
