In addition to the 76 vacancies on AVMA entities and 14 liaison positions announced in Nov. 1 JAVMA News, a seat has opened on the AVMA Judicial Council. Dr. Tom Barrows has resigned from the council, creating a vacant seat in an unspecified category. The AVMA member who is elected to that position by the House of Delegates will serve the remainder of the unexpired term ending in July 2008 and then be eligible for re-election to a full, six-year term.
The HOD will fill council openings when it meets in July 2007 in Washington, D.C. The Executive Board will make liaison and committee appointments at its April 2007 meeting.
Council and committee nomination forms are available on the AVMA Web site, www.avma.org/about_avma/governance/default.asp, or by calling AVMA headquarters at (800) 248-2862, Ext. 6651 for councils, Ext. 6605 for committees.
