Lights, Camera, Action! ...Cut!

<p style="color:rgba(0,0,0,1); font-family:open sans; font-size:16px; font-style:normal; font-weight:600; line-height:27px">Ever fancied yourself behind a camera, or maybe in a post-production role?</p>
<p>Dreams are NOT free – but if you’re a CVE Member, they’ve just become a helluva lot more achievable!</p>
<p>We know from recent breakfast discussions held with vets and from general feedback that many of you feel stressed and burnt out, and are looking for some emotional nourishment.</p>
<p>Here’s your chance.</p>
<p>The CVE have negotiated a 10% discount off Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) courses at the University of Sydney (UoS) for all CVE Members. This is an amazing offer and equals the discount available to UoS employees.</p>
<h2>Big ideas.&nbsp;Short courses.</h2>
<p>Open to the general community, the CCE is the vehicle whereby the UoS – recognising the value of continuing education and lifelong learning for all – extends access to its resources and expertise to the public. The CCE offers an amazing range beginning with A at Arts &amp; Humanities and ranging through to Travel. Investigate the range of courses available here: <a href=""></a></p>
<p>If you’ve recently started your own practice, you may be keen on learning more about business topics such as ‘Budgets and Forecasts Course for&nbsp;Organisations’. Or you may feel dangerously close to exhaustion and burn-out and need some emotional nourishment – what better than a completely non-veterinary topic like Music, Film or Television…?</p>
<p style="color:rgba(0,0,0,1); font-family:open sans; font-size:16px; font-style:normal; font-weight:600; line-height:27px">Great, but I don't live in Sydney.</p>
<p>But maybe you’d be keen to combine an interesting course with a holiday? There are some great 1- and 2-day courses available:-</p>
<li><a href="">A Day in Herculaneum Course</a></li>
<li><a href="">Street Photography Course I: Day</a></li>
<li><a href="">Leadership Skills Course: Strategies for Developing a Leadership Identity</a></li>

<p style="color:rgba(0,0,0,1); font-family:open sans; font-size:16px; font-style:normal; font-weight:600; line-height:27px">How to I register for the 10% discount?</p>

Engagement Communications Specialist

Lis celebrated 25 years working for the CVE in July 2016. Building a strong CVE professional community has long been a key focus, to which end she completed a Masters of Marketing at the University of Sydney in 2016. Her capstone consulting project was based around surveying veterinarians in Australia and overseas to discover how they experienced the CVE both as a membership organisation and participants in continuing professional development. Lis was awarded the Australian Marketing Institute Prize for Best Consulting Project in 2016 for the most outstanding research project in her graduating class. The vast volume of data generated in this research project is being used to assist the CVE to adapt, improve and innovate to ensure that membership remains as relevant and as accessible today as when Tom Hungerford and colleagues first established the CVE in 1965.
