As the AVMA House of Delegates meets for its regular winter session early next month, volunteers from around the country will gather to represent you – our members – as they tackle a variety of issues. HOD members will consider resolutions on random-source animals in research, swine disease surveillance and the restructuring of House of Delegates Reference Committees. They will also deliberate three proposed amendments to the AVMA Bylaws dealing with student representation at Executive Board meetings, the composition of the HOD and term limits for HOD members.
Even though the discussions might take place miles away from where you live and work, your opinions are still needed and encouraged. We invite you to check out the proposals and contact your state VMA or constituent allied organization to share your thoughts. They count, and you deserve to be heard.
