 AVMA recognizes Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Posted Jan. 1, 2006

To demonstrate the AVMA's commitment to diversity, the Executive Board approved designating Martin Luther King Jr. Day as an additional paid holiday for full-time AVMA employees. AVMA President Henry E. Childers and Executive Board member Dr. Larry M. Kornegay, District VIII, put forward the recommendation.

According to the Association Forum 2004-2005 Compensation and Benefits Survey, 35 percent of all associations observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a paid holiday in 2005.
