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.
