In Practice 2019 – Monday 13th May

 

In Practice is an event for recent graduates of the BVSc at Massey University. The event provides an opportunity for NZVA to engage with potential and current members of the association and provide support and advice during their first year(s) of employment.

 

Objective

The aim of this event is to provide a networking platform in a casual setting. Engaging sponsors, NZVA staff, and young vets within the profession, we want new graduates to feel supported. The event should take on a different vibe to student events, not be on campus, and promote NZVA in a ‘cool’ light to ensure an interest in membership engagement.

2019 Brief

The approach this year is broadly the same as last year, due to the success of the event when held in 2018. The aim is to create an extremely relaxed and informal garden party environment for the event. To help create this atmosphere, we have moved the event to an evening time to feel less formal, and welcomed guests to bring plus ones along.

Four speakers will be interspersed throughout the event in a casual manner. In reality, the Member Engagement Co-ordinator will be keeping to a fairly regulated schedule for these speakers and monitoring running order etc. The total speaking time will take up a relatively minor percentage of the event’s running time; drinks, nibbles, networking and allowing Massey graduates to reconnect will take up the majority.
