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.
