The Texas Veterinary Medical Association has two (2) governing documents. The Bylaws set out the purposes and general organizational structure for TVMA. The Policies Manual details how TVMA operates in order to meet the purposes stated in the Bylaws.
TVMA Bylaws may be amended or repealed by a two-third (2/3) majority vote of the TVMA Board of Directors provided the proposed amendment has been:
Presented by the Executive Committee for review and opinion and presentation to the Board of Directors.
Published in a TVMA publication of general circulation at least two (2) months before the Board of Directors meeting at which a vote is to be taken on the proposed change. Upon passage by a two-third (2/3) majority vote of the Board of Directors, the amendment shall be valid and effective immediately.
