Council Nominations April 2016

MVMA Council Nominiation Form - Veterinary Technologist Member


The MVMA is currently finalizing the legislated changes to the composition to the MVMA Council.   Effective May 5, 2016, in addition to the seven veterinarians on the MVMA Council, there will be two veterinary technologists members and two public members.  The two public members have been appointed and are ready to begin their term on the MVMA Council.  The MVMA is now seeking nominations for the two veterinary technologist positions.

The MVMA hopes that eligible MVMA members will take the opportunity to participate in this nomination and election process.

Two MVMA Council Technologist Member positions need to be filled by May 5, 2016.  The MVMA is seeking nominations to fill these two positions.  Only current MVMA members registered under s. 17 of the Veterinary Medical Act (veterinary technologists)* are eligible to be nominated for these positions. Nominations for these positions will be open from April 11 until 3p.m. on April 15, 2016.
