The AVMA Congressional Advocacy Network (AVMA-CAN) is headed to Denver for the AVMA Annual Convention on July 26-28. We will be located in the AVMA Pavilion, booth #639, where we will be providing opportunities for AVMA members and other participants to voice their concerns about federal legislation directly to Congress through the AVMA-CAN Government Action Center.
AVMA is tracking several federal bills that will impact veterinary medicine, including:
- The Prevent All Soring Tactics Act
- The Horse Transportation Safety Act
- The Fairness to Pet Owners Act
- Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program Enhancement Act
If you’re not attending the AVMA Convention this year, you can still stay involved. Make sure you visit the AVMA-CAN Government Action Center online and track how your legislators are voting and how issues of concern are developing. In addition, visitors to the website can learn more about the AVMA’s legislative agenda and how they can help advance the veterinary profession in the 113th Congress.
The AVMA-CAN Facebook page is also a great way to stay up-to-date on legislation and see the latest videos, photos and articles on veterinary issues. AVMA-CAN encourages you, your colleagues and friends to join the page and help advance the profession of veterinary medicine.
