Nominating Committee Members Needed

With elections just around the corner for DVM officers, it is time to find volunteers for our Nominating Committee. We need dedicated members of our chapter to help us encourage, recruit, and review potential nominees for office in the coming election.

If you volunteer for the Nominating Committee, you cannot also run for office, so if you want to pitch in but want to guarantee you won’t be an officer, here’s your chance!

If you are interested and would like to know more, please reach out to and
