AzVMA is vigilant in efforts to protect your license from laws and regulations that place unnecessary burdens on your ability to practice the best possible medicine for your patients and clients.
AzVMA has a legislative representative who monitors legislation and helps lead association efforts to protect your veterinary license. We also have important contacts with the legislative branch of the AVMA to stay abreast of national issues.
AzVMA follows policies set by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) unless it adopts specific policies. The AzVMA represents the interests of veterinarians in Arizona and works with the AVMA on federal legislative and regulatory issues that influence animal health, public health and the veterinary profession.
Learn how you can have an impact on the future of animal health, human health and the veterinary profession. Your veterinary expertise can help decision-makers across Arizona and our nation shape public policy to preserve the future of veterinary medicine. Get to know your district's legislators and develop a relationship with them so when called upon we can have a strong voice for the best interest of Arizona's veterinary community.
