Along with CE and networking opportunities, the AVMA governance meetings that take place at VLC are a cornerstone of the conference experience. Whether or not you're a member of the AVMA Board of Directors or House of Delegates, these meetings give you an opportunity to see first-hand how AVMA does business—and think about how you'd like to get more involved in shaping the future of the profession.

To help break it down, take a look at the Quick Guide to AVMA Governance.
