The Evening of Excellence during Annual Conference is a night of celebration where we recognize and honor veterinarians, team members, pets, and citizens who have contributed to the advancement and protection of the veterinary profession in Florida. We recognize more than success, we honor hard work, and we award service.

The ceremony is followed by the official installation of new FVMA officers and the graduation ceremony of the current Power of Ten class. As we celebrate the exceptional young leaders who make the Power of Ten program possible every year, we also induct the upcoming class who will carry on the program’s mission.

We don’t always remember to say thank you to those who deserve it. Join us in recognizing the exceptional contributions of these individuals!

Friday through Saturday
