When you join VFED as a paid member, you can see videos of most table talk meetings.

Table Talk, noun:
[tey-buh | tawk] a conversation around a table.

Our monthly table talks are a time treatment providers have with each other to catch up on our various professional endeavors. We introduce ourselves to each other, we examine our challenges together, and each month we enrich our understanding of one important aspect of patient care. Receiving this peer support is essential. Not only is a team approach necessary in our field, but it is this support that prevents burnout and continually renews our compassion for those who seek our services. 

Table Talk Attendance is included with your paid membership. There is a $10 fee for non-members. The meeting includes 1 CEU.  Members can login and watch past table talks.

New This Year: All registration and payment for Table Talk Tickets are on CE-go.  If you did not receive an email invitation and would like to attend, please email us at  The email invitations will have a link to register.  Members will also receive a separate email with the coupon code to register for the meeting at no fee.

BeFed with VFED Consultation Group: You will also be receiving an email invitation each month for our new BeFed with VFED consultation group. Only paid VFED members will receive the email invitation to attend.

Come join us. 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, our meetings have been held over zoom.  We hope to be able to be back to in-person meetings soon.
