The Veterinary Leadership Group (VLG) is composed of approximately twenty-five current or former veterinary practice owners or senior managers of animal hospitals.
We are a diverse group with many interests and areas of expertise. Represented in the group are both solo and multi-practitioner practices, practices with multiple locations and large referral practices. We have several members who are well recognized in the veterinary world as experts in practice management and marketing, as well as members who are former practice owners but who still contribute as mentors.
The greatest benefit from membership in VLG is the ability to network with a group of individuals and practices regarding any aspect of the business of veterinary medicine. At meetings, we are constantly comparing different methods used to solve similar problems. Between meetings, we use our web site's Discussion Forums to continue these discussions. Additionally, our web site is a repository of documents we can all download for use in our practices.
Our website serves as the introduction for potential new members (managing veterinarians). It also introduces corporate sponsors to our organization who help fund efforts. Our group focuses on management and leadership training with the ultimate goal of promoting high quality veterinary medicine.
We need to update the look of our website but realize that the redesign of our logo must come first, as the website design will be based on the new logo. Our logo appears dated and needs to look vibrant and innovative. Even though this is a veterinary organization, animals are not necessary as part of the logo and the new logo doesn't need to look anything like the current logo (see http://www.vlg.us). We are looking for out-of-the-box ideas.
