 AVMA seeks nominations to board

Posted Nov. 20, 2013 

AVMA voting members in districts IV and XI have the opportunity to nominate representatives to the Executive Board. 

Drs. Larry G. Dee, District IV representative, and Thomas F. Meyer, District XI representative, will complete their six-year terms in July 2014. The Association is sending a letter to each AVMA voting member in districts IV and XI to invite nominations for representatives to serve on the board for the next six-year term.

District IV comprises Florida, Georgia, and Puerto Rico. District XI comprises Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.  

The Association will accept nominations for district representatives from a state VMA in the district or by petition of at least 50 AVMA voting members in the district.

District residents are eligible to run for the board if they have been AVMA voting members for at least the preceding five years. Nominations must include the completed nomination form, a letter from the candidate indicating a willingness to serve, a biographical summary, and a brief statement of the candidate’s reasons for seeking office.

Information about the nomination process will be available online in mid-December at “Current Volunteer Opportunities.” Information also is available by emailing

Feb. 1, 2014, is the deadline for receipt of nominations for district representatives. If a district has more than one nominee, the Association will mail a ballot to all AVMA voting members in the district.
