USEFUL TIPS FOR USING THE APP
Whether attending the Annual Meeting or not, the new VetPartners mobile App is designed for all VetPartners Members!

Throughout the year we will disseminate information via the App – so, we want you to be get connected too!
One of the benefits of the new App is networking and connecting with fellow VetPartners Members. Each member will create a profile with their contact information and have the ability to direct message members, schedule meetings and collaborate throughout the year.
Here are some important tips to maximize your VetPartners App experience:

- Messaging Attendees: Start chatting with fellow VetPartners Members when you access the attendee list. Because our App is open to all members, regardless if they attend the Annual Meeting, you’ll be able to chat with any member. Through the messaging feature, you will be able to send a message to one or several members at a time.
- Networking: Share your info with all VetPartners Members or select individuals you want to connect with directly.
- Downloading PDFs: Save or share PDF documents directly from the App! There are instructions for IOS and Android devices.
- Marketing Yourself: One of the key features of the VetPartners App is self-promotion. After downloading the App, be sure to complete the full profile and make your profile public by unchecking the private box.
- Playing The Game: It’s easy and fun to rack up points by completing ‘achievements’ on the App. Check your progress – VetPartners Members are pretty competitive!
- Sharing On Social Media: Connect your profile to your social media accounts. It’s a fast, effective to disseminate information in real time. And, it’s fun! Be sure to use this year’s hashtag: #vetpartners17
