The Round Tables are a unique opportunity to have deep, meaningful conversations about animal sheltering and rescue on a predetermined topic with peers and colleagues in a small group setting. Attendees can seek help with issues, learn latest developments in a particular area and make connections with participants who have similar interests. With nearly 100 table topics to choose from, there truly is something for everyone.

As a host, your role is to determine a topic, facilitate the conversation and monitor the discussion. You will need to be present during both Round Table sessions, dates and times to be announced.

Favorite Expo 2023 table topics included:

  • How to be a good boss for a vet even if you aren’t one
