The American Veterinary Medical Association/National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (AVMA/NAVTA) Executive Board Liaison Committee was established in 1990 as an ad hoc committee to improve communication, dialog, relationships, and future activities between the two organizations. In April 2005 the AVMA Executive Board approved continued function of the committee.
The chair of the AVMA Executive Board appoints the chair of the Liaison Committee.
Meetings are held up to twice a year at the call of the committee chair, usually at the AVMA Annual Convention or in conjunction with an AVMA Executive Board meeting.
The AVMA reimburses Executive Board members and CVTEA members for expenses associated with attending meetings of the committee. The AVMA will pay for one half of NAVTA representatives travel expenses and food and lodging expenses for one day for each meeting.
The Committee reports to the Executive Board.
The Committee will be reviewed in compliance with AVMA governance policies.
