No nominations for two AVMA council vacancies were received by the April 1, 2008, deadline. The vacancies are to be filled at the AVMA House of Delegates session in New Orleans, July 18-19.
One position is an unexpired term ending in 2012 on the Council on Communications in the category of private practice, predominantly food animal, and the other position is a full six-year term on the Council on Veterinary Service for a position representing private mixed practice, predominantly food animal or equine.
In accordance with Manual of the House of Delegates, both positions are now temporarily reclassified as at-large categories, since no nominations were received. All voting members of the AVMA are now eligible to fill either vacancy.
Organizations wishing to nominate candidates for these at-large vacancies must submit a nomination form to the Office of the Executive Vice President no later than July 1, 2008. Visit the AVMA Web site, www.avma.org/about_avma/governance/volunteering, to obtain general information about all the councils, as well as for the at-large nomination form.
