 Amendment would tweak governance

​Posted Oct. 15, 2014

The AVMA House of Delegates will consider a proposal in January that would alter the composition of the AVMA Board of Governors and augment the role of the immediate past president.

In September, the Board of Directors approved initiating an AVMA Bylaws amendment to make the changes.

The Board of Governors performs the business and functions of the AVMA between meetings of the Board of Directors. The Board of Governors currently consists of the president, the president-elect, and the chair of the Board of Directors. The bylaws amendment would add the immediate past president and the vice chair of the Board of Directors.

The amendment furthermore would expand the role of the immediate past president to include assisting the president and substituting for the president as necessary.
