President’s Message

IVMA President
Dr. Aaron Johnson

The flowers are blooming, the grass and trees are bringing out their rich colors, and the Indy cars have officially started practice at the Speedway. That means one thing…. May is here! I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful time of year and getting an opportunity to increase their vitamin D levels. And, just as I’m excited to be spending more time outdoors, I’m also excited to share some of the work the IVMA will be focusing on this year.


Executive Director
Lisa Perius, CAE

I hope everyone is taking good care of themselves since we last connected. IVMA continues to be a leader in organized veterinary medicine. Here are a few reasons why:
• After a two-year hiatus, the State Fair Surgery Suite will be back in action during this summer’s Indiana State Fair! We are looking for volunteers to perform surgeries or narrate. If you have any interest, call or email me.


Be a part of it!

Do you want to make a difference in your profession? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that is fun, engaging and rewarding? If so, consider running for a position on the IVMA Board of Directors.

The IVMA Board of Governors is seeking applicants for the following positions for 2023: President-elect – 2023, IVMA At-Large Board Member – 2023 – 2026.

Practice Management

Overcoming Communication Challenges

“Help! We’ve been really busy lately and staff are getting frustrated with each other because no one seems to know what is going on and we look really disorganized in front of clients. How do we fix this?”

While it’s great to be busy, it can be challenging to maintain a necessary level of communication between staff. Communication challenges are common for any business, so applying regular team communication opportunities is imperative – even when the clinic is busy.
