Established in 1941, the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AzVMA) is over 1000 veterinarian members strong. In addition we have over 100 allied industry members who are representatives of the veterinary business community. AzVMA supports the Veterinary Health Care Team of Arizona (VHCTAz), a professional membership organization for all veterinary staff, which boasts a membership of nearly 700. Our robust continuing education program includes over 20 meetings per year for both veterinarians and staff, as well as an annual state conference. AzVMA is a resource of information for members and publishes newsletters for AzVMA and VHCTAz. We have a legislative representative who is the watchdog for all issues that may affect veterinary medicine in Arizona.
The mission of the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AzVMA) is to promote excellence in veterinary medicine by providing a forum for the veterinary community to address issues related to animal and human health and welfare, education, legislation, public information and practice management through active involvement of its members.
The AzVMA board of directors is composed of five officers and fourteen directors. Twelve directors represent six regions in the state. One director represents academia, military, public health or government and regulatory affairs, and one director represents recent graduates. Directors are elected by the members in their district and serve three-year terms. Officers are elected by the directors and serve a one year term in the office to which they have been elected.
