Veterinary Business Branch


The VBB exists to facilitate and empower good veterinary business management for the benefit of all members involved in the industry.

We do this by:

  • Creating a forum for practice managers, head nurses and anyone else interested in the business and leadership of veterinary practice to connect.
  • Facilitating benchmarking and knowledge sharing between clinics and business managers for the benefit of all.
  • Facilitate CPD, including leading the business stream of the NZVA conference to support development in the areas of business, leadership and personal development.  
  • Be a conduit to the NZVA around aspects relating to veterinary businesses, and employment.  
  • Keeping members updated on changes in legislation and business “Best practice”.


Membership is included for NZVA members as part of your annual subscription fee – sign-up when you join or renew your membership. Or, to join outside the membership renewal period please email
