As the staff consultant to the AVMA Task Force on Governance and Membership Participation, I’m posting this on their behalf.
It’s AVMA’s 150th birthday this year and as we reflect on our rich heritage, it’s also time to think ahead to the future. Right now, following the suggestion of AVMA’s 20/20 Commission and a 2011 resolution of the House of Delegates, the AVMA Task Force on Governance and Membership Participation has been working hard to develop a new way to structure AVMA’s governance where each and every member can make contributions to its future. Please check out the Governance Task Force website, review the Governance Dialog script, and provide your comments and feedback. They are important to us – AVMA is your association and it needs to work for you. We need your help to develop a new governance structure that will carry us into the next 150 years.
AVMA members have a number of ways to provide feedback:
