We’d like to say “thank you.” Thanks for your patience during the intensive redesign process of our AVMA website. It’s been a long road, and we’re excited to announce that the new AVMA website is live and ready for your next visit. Thanks to your input, we have made significant enhancements to the website to improve your online experience. We’ve answered your calls for an AVMA website that is personalized to you and your interests, and it’s now easier than ever to find the information you need.
The new “My AVMA” section of the website allows us to deliver content tailored exactly to your interests. In a way, it lets you create your own AVMA Home Page. Whether you’re looking for specific information about topics such as animal advocacy, veterinary education and the veterinary workforce, legislation and regulations related to veterinary medicine, personal wellness, pet ownership and animal health, practice management or practice operations, you can now personalize your website settings to receive all the latest news and updates you need. You can also select content you’d like to see by choosing from comprehensive lists of topics dedicated to veterinary disciplines and species. All you need to do is log in to the site using your AVMA member ID and password, and choose your interests. Each time you log in thereafter, you’ll find the content you want – delivered to you as it happens. Or, you can check the “Remember Me” box from your computer and save a step the next time you visit our site.
Another exciting addition is the AVMA Knowledge Base, a system that allows members to organize in one place the AVMA’s thousands of resources on a single topic, discipline or species, including everything from AVMA policies and press releases to backgrounders and brochures.
The enhanced AVMA website is also home to a new-and-improved version of our NOAH Discussion Boards. Our Network of Animal Health online discussion forum allows members to network and communicate with colleagues. Stumped by a case, or looking for some additional input? Ask your colleagues. Have expertise to share? Answer a colleague’s question. Swap stories, share experiences and help each other with issues that impact your daily life. The online discussion forum is also the best place to interact with your AVMA leaders on the issues that are important to you.
My AVMA, the Knowledge Base and NOAH are just a few highlights of the new AVMA website. You’ll also enjoy improved site navigation and search capabilities, automated links to related content, mobile-friendly display, more print-friendly pages and rotating featured content on our home page. If you haven’t already visited, we invite you to take a look today. Keep an eye out for even more improvements in the future. We’ve just entered Phase 2 of our redesign, and we should wrap everything up early next spring with even more improvements that are part of Phase 3.
