“We are small business owners and one of the biggest stressors for veterinarians is making sure our practices are viable. Connexity is the meld of excellent business practices with culture and wellness to provide tools to make your practice a success for all team members.”
– Dr. Mark McConnell, past AAHA president
Connexity is a unique, highly intimate, and exclusive experience for the changemakers and connection seekers of our profession.
The term “connexity” means community and connection merging as one. At a time when many in the veterinary profession are suffering from feelings of isolation and disconnection, Connexity aims to bring colleagues together and provide meaning behind what you do day in and day out.
What makes Connexity different from other conferences? A departure from the traditional veterinary conference, Connexity’s member-focused experience will focus on impactful networking and transformational learning techniques, including field trips, case study work, and small group problem solving.
Come together and learn together, at Connexity!
What makes Connexity unique?
Solutions for the issues keeping you up at night
Tired of the endless recruitment cycle? Are you losing clients and aren’t sure why? Has your team been impacted by mental health issues? Connexity is focused on finding solutions to everyday challenges in veterinary practices, so we asked you to tell us about the issues keeping you up at night–and molded our educational lineup around your needs.
To help you tie a bow around all you’ve learned each day, we’re thrilled to have AAHA’s own Dr. Heather Loenser on board as Connexity’s official content weaver. As Heather explains it, a content weaver is like “an emcee on steroids.” She’ll help you “weave together” the key concepts from each session into a cohesive message so you can confidently return to your practice armed with essential takeaways and practical tips gleaned not only from the sessions you attended–but also those you didn’t.
Expertise from out human library
During each day’s 90-minute lunch break, you will have the opportunity to “check out” a real, live content expert for up to 15 minutes at a time, for a one-on-one, personalized consultation on topics like digital marketing strategies, recruiting tactics, practice finance, and much more.

The term “connexity” means community and connection merging as one. At a time when many in the veterinary profession are suffering from feelings of isolation and disconnection, AAHA is excited to bring colleagues together to help support their peers, celebrate and shape the future of our profession, and inspire the next generation of innovators and leaders.
It’s not your typical veterinary conference! At AAHA, we’re on a mission to transform the traditional conference experience and bring relevance, meaning, passion, and compassion back to the amazing individuals of our profession (that’s you!).
Guided by key issues currently affecting veterinary professionals, Connexity will focus on solving common problems through facilitated networking and collaborative learning (think field trips, teambuilding activities, case study work, and more).
Most importantly, Connexity guests will become part of a trusted community of peers they can share with and learn from long after the conference has ended.
Connexity was designed specifically with practice leaders in mind. We recommend at least two key team members from each practice (we’re looking at you, hospital directors and practice managers!) attend Connexity together so they can successfully implement everything they’ve learned once they return to practice (you’ll be bursting with so many ideas, you might even start on the plane). Take advantage of our Early Bird Discount and save $100 off the registration price for each team member from your practice until January 31, 2019!
Of course! While Connexity will not offer technician-focused scientific CE, technicians involved or interested in practice management are highly encouraged to attend.
Nope! The more, the merrier.
At Connexity, we want to give you a truly unique experience you won’t forget! To keep that intimate conference feel, we’ve capped attendance at 700 of the best and brightest in the profession.
September 17, 2018 - January 31, 2019: Early bird discount: $699 (first guest), $599 (each additional guest from the same practice)
February 1 - June 30, 2019: $799 (first guest), $699 (each additional guest from the same practice)
July 1 - September 12, 2019: $799 for all guests
Our members are at the center of everything we do, and Connexity is no exception. Because Connexity is focused on finding solutions to everyday challenges in your practice, we asked you to tell us about the issues keeping you up at night. Then, we molded our educational lineup around your needs.
Once you’ve registered, look to your confirmation email for an invitation to join the Connexity Class of 2019 Facebook group, a private group just for Connexity guests.
You’ll be the first to know what we’ve got planned with real-time updates on sessions, events, speakers, and more. You’ll have exclusive opportunities to shape the education you want and receive tips from learning facilitators that will help you maximize your experience. Best of all, you’ll meet fellow Connexity guests and make lasting connections before you ever step foot in Indianapolis.
