Be an AVMA Future Leader – 2015 deadline approaching

Are you ready to take the next step in leadership and service for our profession? If you’re an AVMA member just emerging in your career (15 years out from veterinary school or less) and you’re looking for an exciting yearlong program to help you blaze your leadership path, the Future Leaders Program might just be the program for you.

Application requirements

You don’t need to already be an established leader in organized veterinary medicine. Maybe you served as an officer for your SCAVMA in veterinary school, or you attended the VLE previously; or perhaps you’ve just become a subcommittee member for your state veterinary medical association. If you’ve shown leadership involvement previously, are an AVMA member, and you’re 15 years out of veterinary school or less, this program can help you advance your leadership skills further to benefit the veterinary profession.

It’s all about the journey.
