Nominations are invited for AVMA president-elect for the July 2014-July 2015 Association year. Nominations also are sought for AVMA vice president for a two-year term from July 2014-August 2016.
While nominations will be accepted for these positions through spring 2014, interested candidates are advised to submit their nominations by May 1, 2013. This timing allows for participation in the Candidates’ Introductory Breakfast at the 2013 AVMA Annual Convention in Chicago.
Candidates will then have a full year to campaign. Election by the AVMA House of Delegates will take place at the 2014 AVMA Annual Convention in Denver. The president-elect will go on to serve as president for the July 2015-August 2016 Association year.
Candidates for president-elect or vice president must meet the following requirements:
- Have been voting members of the Association for at least 10 continuous years immediately prior to their election; and
- Have served at least one term on the AVMA Executive Board, one full term on an AVMA council, two full terms on an AVMA committee, or four years as a delegate or alternate delegate in the House of Delegates or have had extensive experience in a state VMA, constituent allied veterinary organization, or regional VMA.
