National Volunteer Week is April 15-21 and celebrates people in action. The AVMA would not be able to serve its members and the profession without the contributions of our volunteers. We have a very active and professional staff, but it is the multitude of volunteers who share their time and insight that drive the Association. Whether it's in leadership positions, focus groups, Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams (VMATs) as JAVMA and AJVR reviewers, or by providing or by providing content expertise on a range of subjects including examination development and panels on euthanasia, humane slaughter and depopulation, our volunteers are the heart and soul of our nearly 150 year old association.
The AVMA, animal owners, and all who enjoy a safe food supply and significant advances in medicine owe you, our volunteers, a huge "Thank you!"
