As a professional association, CVMA seeks to offer high quality, local continuing education programs, strong local and national advocacy at the State House and in Congress, to be a resource for member inquiries, and a representative face of the veterinary community on various issues, task forces, and teams around the State addressing animal welfare or public health.
More than all of that, we help to foster community among our profession – of veterinarians and technicians – across Connecticut. In the fast-changing world of veterinary medicine, it is a help to us all to have an organization dedicated to monitoring all potential new laws and regulations, anticipating or reacting to changes in our economic or market landscape and working to ensure that we know each other and collaborate on behalf of our profession for the good of all the animals in our care.
We are grateful to have more than 700 members in Connecticut, as it contributes tremendously to our ability to wield influence when we advocate for or against regulations. This year the CVMA successfully defeated a proposed sales tax on veterinary services. This was a true team effort across the State and across our member practices. We were stronger for being an allied group of hospitals making our voice heard collectively. Thank you for your involvement in and support of the CVMA and its goals this year.
As we ready for a new year (our fiscal year begins November 1st), we look forward to strong member involvement. It is our hope that you will join or renew your membership to the CVMA in 2016.
This year the CVMA has enlisted several industry partners to participate in our membership program. They are offering a number of products and discounts to new or renewing members and we are very pleased and grateful to have their involvement in and support of the CVMA. New members will receive $956 in value and renewing members $486 in value. Thank you in advance for your consideration of our request that you join the CVMA. We look forward to counting you among our 2016 members.
