 Bylaw amended

Posted Aug. 15, 2008 

The House of Delegates approved a proposed amendment to the AVMA Bylaws in July that permits it to fill council vacancies at both of its regular sessions. Now, in addition to electing council members at the HOD regular annual session held in conjunction with the AVMA Annual Convention, the body can elect them at its regular winter session during the AVMA Veterinary Leadership Conference.

The House Advisory Committee submitted the amendment to allow the HOD to fill unexpected vacancies on AVMA councils in a timely fashion.
