The deadline for receipt of AVMA council nominations is close, and there's a new requirement for council candidates who want to be included in the electronic campaign guide.
Council candidates who want to be profiled in the 2012 AVMA Campaign Guide now must record and submit a 2-minute YouTube campaign video.
The House Advisory Committee sees the videos as an opportunity for all council candidates to introduce themselves before the delegates elect new council members.
April 1 is the deadline for receipt of council nomination forms, information for the campaign guide, and the YouTube videos.
Candidates who choose not to record a video will not be included in the campaign guide. A YouTube video is not required for House Advisory Committee or officer candidates, as they are required to give 2-minute speeches in person during the HOD regular annual session in San Diego.
A list of council vacancies, nomination forms, and details about the campaign guide and videos are posted online at www.avma.org; click on "Volunteer opportunities" and select the link "Current Volunteer Opportunities." Or call AVMA headquarters at (800) 248-2862, Ext. 6605.
