         PENDLETON --- Christee Williams, a licensed veterinary technician and instructor in Tri-County Technical College's Veterinary Technology program since 1989, has been asked to serve on the 2011 Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) Practice Analysis Task Force, an ad hoc committee of 10 - 12 subject matter experts who represent a broad range of practice settings.  The role of the task force is to critically review the current test content outline of the VTNE examination and to update it as appropriate to reflect contemporary practices in the field.

         She will attend her first meeting October 15 - 16 in Kansas City, Missouri.

         VTNE, owned and administered by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards, is used to evaluate entry-level veterinary technicians' competence to practice and to be credentialed.  The computer-based exam is given in three testing windows each year and is constantly updated, reviewed and reevaluated by a highly qualified team of writers so that it remains a valid tool.  Most states and provinces require a passing score on the VTNE as one criterion for credentialing.

         In addition to teaching full time, Williams serves as the faculty advisor to the student chapter of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA).  She also is a member of the South Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians (SCAVT) and serves as the regional representative on the SCAVT state board.  She served as treasurer of the board from 2001 - 2011.          Williams also is a member of the South Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians (SCAVT) and serves as the regional representative on the SCAVT state board.  She served as treasurer of the board from 2001 - 2011.

         Williams is a 1982 graduate of Tri-County's Veterinary Technology program and went on to work at Clemson University as a research specialist in the Poultry Science Department.  In 1989 she joined her alma mater as an instructor in the Veterinary Technology program.  In 1995 she received the first-ever Technician of the Year award from the South Carolina Association of Veterinarians. 

         Williams and her husband, Charles, live in Pendleton and have two children, Joshua and Ashley.
