Meeting Aug. 7 in San Diego on the final day of the AVMA Annual Convention, the Association’s Executive Board elected and installed Dr. Janver D. Krehbiel as its chair for the upcoming Association year and Dr. Thomas F. Meyer as its vice chair.

Dr. Krehbiel is the Executive Board’s District V representative and a professor in the Pathobiology and Diagnostic Investigation Department at the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He has served as senior associate dean for administration and as associate dean for academic affairs and is currently director of international programs at the college.

Dr. Meyer, the District XI representative on the board, is co-owner with his wife, Dr. Jean Meyer, of an American Animal Hospital Association-certified mixed animal practice in Vancouver, Wash. He established Mountain View Veterinary Hospital in 1979, a year after his graduation from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine, and today the practice employs three associate veterinarians.
