American Veterinary Medical Association Convention in St. Louis

I was there with Dan Kramer, then of Pfizer Animal Health when the CATalyst Council was created. The CATalyst Council met at the AVMA meeting with a meeting of our own (I am on the CATalyst Board).

Dan is the past chair (as well as a founder) and Dr. Alexis Nahama of VCA is the current chair, a driving force behind CATalyst.
