The American Veterinary Medical Association is initiating a “Future Critical Issues Scan” as part of its effort to re-evaluate and revise its strategic plan.
The plan most recently was approved in 2008 by the AVMA executive board. The new initiative intends to produce feedback from all segments of the group’s diverse membership, which encompasses more than 80,000 veterinarians in private practice, government, industry, academia, research and uniformed services.
AVMA President Larry Corry, DVM, said the input and participation of members has grown the association to the position it holds today.
“We need the continued input and participation of our members to get us to an even stronger position tomorrow,” he said.
AVMA members may offer feedback online. They will be asked to describe the three most important issues facing the veterinary profession during the next five years.
