I previously posted a blog entry with links to the proposed resolutions and bylaws amendments that will be considered by the AVMA House of Delegates at their Winter Session on January 5, 2013 in Chicago.
At their November 2012 meeting, the AVMA Executive Board referred to the House of Delegates one new policy and three proposed revisions to existing policies. For the full text of the resolutions as they will be presented to the House, click the links below. A full list of all proposed resolutions and bylaws amendments that will be considered during the Winter Session is also available on our website.
Resolution 4-2013 proposes revisions to the existing policy on canine devocalization.
Resolution 5-2013 proposes a new policy on livestock handling tools.
Resolution 6-2013 proposes revisions to the existing policy on pluripotent stem cells.
Resolution 7-2013 proposes revisions to the existing microchipping/electronic identification policy.
AVMA members who would like to provide their input on any or all of the proposed resolutions and amendments are encouraged to do so and should contact their HOD delegates. Your delegates and their contact information can be found by selecting the “My AVMA Leaders” link in the Member Center on the AVMA website. Because the AVMA is a member organization, only AVMA members are allowed to provide direct input to HOD representatives.
