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. The text of the amendment is on page 1816.
