Minnesota Opportunities for Veterinary Engagement


MOVE is the newest initiative by the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association to support the professional success and development of veterinarians through social and educational networking opportunities.

Engage with your peers and meet experienced individuals in the veterinary profession. Network in a fun, relaxed setting while enjoying the company of your colleagues.

Connect to those going through similar professional experiences. Share and receive advice on relevant topics to you and your career.

Success happens when you are able to engage, connect and learn from others. We want you to move through your veterinarian career with ease and with the tools necessary to be successful.

Upcoming Events 

River Rats Water Ski Show - Wednesday, July 24th, 2024
Back by popular demand! Join MOVE: Minnesota Opportunities for Veterinarian Engagement at the Twin Cities River Rats Water Ski Show on Wednesday evening July 24! MVMA members, DVM non-members, vet support staff and your families are invited to come out for a night of action packed themed water skiing on the Mississippi River! This is a very kid friendly event and we encourage you to bring out the whole family.
The event is completely free. RSVP on our Facebook event. Street parking is available on West River Road south of Broadway Avenue and side streets as well as in the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board parking lot at 2117 West River Road. Please do not park in the nearby business parking lots. More information about the River Rats can be found here: http://tcriverrats.com/
The pre-show begins at 6:30 p.m. but we encourage arriving early to engage with your veterinary community and because parking gets packed! It’s a good idea to carpool or use a ride share service to get there. Main show starts at 7 p.m.
For watching the show, we will set up camp early in front of the big red concession stand tent. Look for the large yellow and blue blankets. Feel free to bring your own blankets or lawn chairs. All attendees will be provided a meal and drink at the concession stand and we will have coolers with additional fun beverages available too!
