In light of the AVMA focus on refiguring some of the governance, I read this article (PDF) recently by Glenn Tecker. It outlines the issues that surround association large representative assemblies, in our case, this would be the House of Delegates. It outlines the challenges and pros and cons of such an entity. Really good insights as to what might be holding AVMA back or carrying AVMA forward, depending on your perspective.
I would love to hear any thoughts or feedback on this one!
