 AVMA board anticipates new year

Posted Dec. 31, 2012  
The AVMA Executive Board convened at Association headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., Nov. 15-17, 2012.
Dr. Janver Krehbiel of Mason, Mich., chaired the meeting, which included discussions about this year’s celebration of the AVMA’s 150th anniversary.
In addition to acting on proposals from several AVMA entities, the Executive Board strengthened the Association’s opposition to declawing wild and exotic cats for nonmedical purposes, set a legislative course for the new 113th Congress, and reaffirmed its commitment to training future leaders of the veterinary profession.
