Nominations are invited for AVMA president-elect for the July 2015-August 2016 Association year.

While nominations will be accepted for this position through spring 2015, interested candidates are advised to submit their nominations by May 1, 2014. This timing allows for participation in the Candidates’ Introductory Breakfast at the 2014 AVMA Annual Convention in Denver.

Candidates for president-elect must meet the following requirements:

  • Have been voting members of the Association for at least 10 continuous years immediately prior to their election.
