We are listening to our members, who are calling and emailing their Member Experience team and posting in the AAHA-Accredited Members Facebook Group.* In addition to questions about how to stay open during these difficult times with curbside services, telemedicine, inventory management, client communications, and staff wellbeing in mind, you still have to do the day-to-day work of caring for pets. You’re also asking about how to pay your employees, how to handle unemployment, and how to apply for government aid.
These are unprecedented times calling for resilience and creative adaptation in practice, including the conservation of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the delay of elective surgeries, which AAHA supports.
Things are changing extremely quickly. If you have tips, questions, insights, or even a bit of hope to share, please contact us or reach out to your peers in the AAHA-Accredited Members Facebook Group, where AAHA staff, including practice consultants, accreditation specialists, learning facilitators, executive leadership, and board members, are frequently active.
One of your most valuable resources as an AAHA member is your Member Experience team. Whether you have a question about your evaluation, are wondering about an upcoming event, or simply need someone to talk to, reach out to us at 800-252-2242 or [email protected]. We’re here to support you, and we encourage you to continue to support one another.
Thanks for all you are doing out there and stay healthy,
Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP (C/F) Emeritus AAHA Chief Executive Officer
