Still have questions? We’re here to help.

How long is a VECCS membership?

VECCS Membership is a one year membership beginning the day you register.

When will I get my JVECC Hardcopy?

The hardcopy JVECC goes out every two months, roughly arriving to members in late February, April, June, August, October and December.

What do I do when I cannot log in to my membership account?

If you are having trouble logging in to your VECCS account, please email [email protected].

Do I need to be a member of VIN/VSPN to watch the monthly VECCS Webinars?

No, you do not need to subscribe to VIN, but you do need a VIN login for access. To do so, please email VIN at [email protected] by close of business on the Friday before the webinar. In the email, include your full name and contact information.

If you have already created an account, but are having trouble getting into VIN, you can also email [email protected] for support.

Why am I not receiving the monthly VECCS newsletter and other communications?

Most likely, we have an old or incorrect email address on file for you or you have accidentally unsubscribed from our emailing list. Please contact [email protected] and we will troubleshoot this with you!

How do I change my membership type?

If your status has changed from student or intern/res to veterinarian, our system doesn’t enable you to change this yourself when renewing, at this time, so please contact [email protected] to let us know and we can happily change that for you!

How do I get my IVECCS CE Certificates for past shows?

Email [email protected] with the conference/year attended and the name and email address you registered under.

For more information, please contact us at [email protected]
