Arizona Veterinary Medical Association

The Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AzVMA) is a community of professionals who believe in the power of association. Together we are a force for innovation and advancement, a voice for excellence in the veterinary practice, and an advocate for personal and professional well-being.

Established in 1941, the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AzVMA) has over 3,000 veterinary professional members. In addition, we have over 150 Allied Industry members who are representatives of the veterinary business community. AzVMA supports the Veterinary Health Care Team of Arizona (VHCTAz), a professional membership group for all veterinary staff, which boasts a membership of over 1,300. Our robust continuing education program includes over 20 meetings per year for both veterinarians and staff, as well as an annual state conference and wellness programs. AzVMA is a resource of information for members and publishes newsletters for AzVMA, Allied Industry, VHCTAz, and Wellness. We have a legislative representative who monitors legislature and helps lead association efforts to protect your veterinary license.

The mission of the Arizona Veterinary Medical Association (AzVMA) is to promote excellence in veterinary medicine by providing a forum for the veterinary community to address issues related to animal and human health and welfare, education, legislation, public information and practice management through active involvement of its members.
