Faster, easier, more environmentally friendly

AVMA members should begin receiving notifications this week to renew your membership for 2017, and we’re excited and proud to let you know we’ve made the process easier and more environmentally friendly.

We’ve revamped the online renewal process to improve usability, reduce the number of steps, and provide on-demand printing of your current membership card.

Here’s how it works

2017_MembershipCard_101816_We’ll send you an email with a link to renew your AVMA membership for 2017. (You might already have received this. If not, sign into your member profile and make sure your AVMA contact information includes your correct email address.)

Once you click that link and sign into the AVMA website, you’ll be able to follow a streamlined, two-step renewal process including options to change your journal subscription and/or make voluntary contributions to the AVMF and AVMAPAC.

That’s it! After your renewal has been processed, you’ll receive a thank-you email that includes a link to your new downloadable, printable electronic membership card.

How do you benefit?

The new process offers:

  • Improved mobile design, with larger form fields and buttons that make it easier to renew on your phone or tablet
  • Electronic membership card with all the same benefits as the printed card, accessible online at any time
  • Better usability and fewer steps to complete your membership renewal
  • New option to change your journal subscription at the same time as you renew your membership

Approximately half of all AVMA website sessions now take place on a mobile device, so we’ve made a special effort to make the pages more mobile-friendly. Our decision to “go green” with electronic member cards also aligns with members’ changing expectations, providing you all the benefits you had previously, plus 24/7 access, with less environmental impact. AVMA members can visit “My Profile” on AVMA.org at any time to view, print or download their membership card.

Don’t want to renew online?

If you don’t have access to a computer or email, or simply aren’t comfortable renewing online, don’t worry. We still have offline renewal options. Call us at 1-800-248-2862, ext. 6631, for details, or simply wait to receive a renewal notice via surface mail.

We’re committed to making it easy to do business with the AVMA, whatever your personal preference might be.
