Take our survey to strengthen AVMA’s advocacy

Veterinarians across the nation serve as trusted community leaders with important local connections to policymakers. That’s great for our profession – because sometimes local connections are the best tool for moving the needle on the national issues that most affect veterinary medicine.

To leverage these community ties, we have to understand them. We need your help to do that.

The AVMA is conducting a survey to better understand our members' network of relationships with elected officials, how interested you are in certain public policy issues, and whether you want to take a more active role in advocating for veterinary medicine in the public policy arena.

This information will help us most effectively leverage the collective power of our 93,000-plus members to support public policy that improves the lives of veterinarians, our patients, and our clients. It also will help us know when you want to hear from us, and what topics you want to hear about, so we can better meet your needs.

Please help us protect, promote, and advance veterinary medicine by taking a few minutes to complete this survey. It will make a tremendous difference in our work on behalf of all of our veterinary colleagues.

As 2019 gets underway, our collective advocacy will be critical to securing victories for veterinary medicine on issues like student debt, prescription mandates, horse soring, and other animal health and welfare matters. By completing this survey now, you’ll help make our voice heard across the country.

Once you have completed the survey, you can discover additional ways to advocate on behalf of veterinary medicine by visiting the AVMA Congressional Advocacy Network website. Thank you for everything you do for the veterinary profession – our advocacy success wouldn’t be possible without your support.
