CVMA BOARD OF
GOVERNORS REPORT
At the June 2 meeting, the Board discussed and approved
changes to the CVMA's committee structure and composition.
One of the changes is to consolidate the CVMA's
Leadership Development Committee into the Ways &
Means Committee/President's Council. This will likely
require a Bylaws change which CVMA will get moving on
that in short order.
CVMA is now commencing efforts to compose the CVMA's
new Inclusion and Diversity Committee, which was greenlighted
at the March meeting. CVMA's aim is to have the
first meeting of that new committee by the end of the year.
On July 1, CVMA will be launching a new member benefit-Active
and Fit Direct-that will allow members to
obtain discounted access to a network of fitness centers
across the country. CVMA will be putting out our initial
publications about this benefit in the coming weeks.
CVMA is continuing its efforts to obtain an audience
with the Veterinary Medical Board on the subject of the
VMB's recordkeeping-related enforcement protocols. In
that regard, CVMA staff on June 2 presented the CVMA's
joint Board and House with a " dry run " of their planned
presentation to the VMB on that issue. Following that
presentation, CVMA again reached out to the VMB concerning
hopes to give this presentation to the VMB itself.
(Note that the presentation was previously agendized
at the VMB's April 20 meeting, but then pulled the
week prior due to concerns expressed by the VMB's staff
regarding the substance of the presentation.)
The Board and House listened to Dean and student
reports from UC Davis and WesternU, as well as reports
from the AVMA's California and District X delegates,
Veterinary Medical Board staff, and CVMA staff. The
CVMA was also happy to welcome and hear comments
from the AVMA's 2021-2022 President, Dr. Jose Arce.
The joint session additionally featured a send-off for the
CVMA's longtime lobbyist, Mike Dillon, who is retiring
at the end of the 2022 legislative session. The CVMA's
interests at the Capitol will continue to be capably represented
by Christina DiCaro, who has worked hand-inhand
with Mike Dillon since the early 2000s.
The CVMA Board voted to support longtime CVMA member
Dr. Grace Bransford in her bid for 2022-2023 AVMA
President-Elect.
The CVMA Board approved changes to the bylaws of
the California Veterinary Medical Foundation, which
supports the CVMA's disaster relief efforts and funds
veterinary student scholarships. These bylaw changes
were mostly non-substantive, designed to streamline
and modernize the CVMF's governing rules.
Attendance was strong at the 2022 Pacific Veterinary
Conference in San Francisco. It was the first time that
CVMA has presented PacVet as a " hybrid " offering. Next
year's Pac Vet will be held in Long Beach.
