The AVMA’s Governance Engagement Team (GET) needs your input. Upon the release of the AVMA Task Force on Governance and Membership Participation Report, the AVMA Executive Board charged this seven-person volunteer entity to communicate with members about a far-reaching proposal to change the association’s governance structure and improve how veterinarians engage with the AVMA.
The report builds on the findings of the AVMA 20/20 Commission, which suggested that the association’s governance system is going to have to adapt in order to adequately lead the veterinary profession in the new century.
This is where you come in. By answering a few questions in an AVMA-produced survey, you can help shape the association’s future. The GET will use the feedback from the survey to create a final governance proposal later this year.
You can find the task force report, as well as a shorter executive summary, on our website. We have also prepared a Frequently Asked Questions document to explain the report’s key elements and likely next steps. We encourage and welcome your participation in the survey. It’ll only take a few minutes, and your input is invaluable to our efforts to make our association more nimble and more engaged with our members.
