Nominate Someone for a 2023 CVMA Award
It is the CVMA’s honor and pleasure to recognize significant contributions to the veterinary profession! The announcement of the award recipients is the highlight of the Pacific Veterinary Conference. We invite all readers to take a moment and ask, “Who has stood out in the crowd?” Who has made a difference?” Then, send your nomination packet to the CVMA between September 30 and December 31. In June 2023 you can join your colleagues in Long Beach in applauding the recipients of these prestigious awards!
It’s Not About Politics….It’s About Your Profession. The CVMA PAC is a bipartisan political action committee whose purpose is to educate state legislators and candidates on issues of importance to the veterinary profession.
