The Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians membership is on the rise. When the association began in 2000 it had 125 members. As of September, it had grown to about 582 members.
A 2008 goal for membership is to increase awareness and participation by veterinary technicians, international veterinarians and students.
Committees formed to reach these goals include panels on public relations, education, conferences, ABVP, international membership, technicians, student chapters and policies and regulations.
