A Dedicated Profession

All governance of TVMA is provided by volunteer leaders chosen each year by the members of the association. Unlike TVMA staff and unlike their counterparts in private business, our leaders do not get paid for their time and effort. They are dedicated veterinarians who give many hours and much energy each year to the governance, management and operations of TVMA out of duty and devotion to their profession. The Board of Directors serves as the legislative arm of TVMA

Director Nominations Opening Soon


Why you should consider serving on the Board:

  1. Be a voice for your profession – Through your role as an advocate you will have an opportunity to represent the interests of veterinarians as new laws and regulations are brought before your profession.
  2. Develop/enhance leadership skills – Grasp the opportunity to build consensus among a group, provide direction and influence decisions.
  3. Grow professionally – Connect with colleagues and build professional relationships with talented and knowledgeable members of the profession.
