Heading to AVMA’s Convention this summer in Boston? AVMA’s Governmental Relations Division staff will be available at the AVMA Pavilion to speak with members and students about the exciting opportunities we offer in Washington, including the externship program for students and the fellowship program for veterinarians, and the association’s legislative agenda, including issues of importance to the profession such as:
- the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act;
- the Fairness to Pet Owners Act;
- the Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program Enhancement Act; and
- several student loan bills.
If you’re not attending the AVMA Convention this year, you can still stay involved. Make sure you visit the Government Action Center 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 here.
