 Extending the vice president's term of office

Posted Dec. 1, 2008

An AVMA Bylaws amendment is on the way to the House of Delegates that would double the vice president's term to two years.

The Executive Board approved a recommendation from the Governance Performance Review Committee to initiate the bylaws amendment, which would provide for a single two-year term.

The GPRC believes this change could increase the vice president's efficiency and productivity while reducing the expense associated with campaigning for re-election.

The House Advisory Committee also supports this amendment. Here is text of the amendment.
