Update: November 7, 2023 – applications are now closed
Calling all Credentialed Veterinary Technicians! NAVTA needs your creative thoughts, innovative ideas, and new perspectives. If you’ve ever wanted to shape the future of Veterinary Technology, here is your chance to do so!
Several NAVTA Committees and a brand new Task Force are looking for new members. Most committees meet once every month or two. Time commitments range from a low of 12 hours/year (1 hour/month) to a high of 24 hours/year…so definitely do-able for most people! Check out the committee “job descriptions,” including some of their current projects, then complete the “Committee Application Form.” Most committees have a limit on the number of members they can accept, so be sure to put your best foot forward. Applications will remain open until November 7. Committee chairs will be in touch with you before the end of November to let you know of your application status.

In addition, NAVTA is forming a task force to look into the idea of creating a “joint membership” structure with AVMA. The task force will be Chaired by NAVTA’s Past President and will include the President-Elect, a representative from the Membership Committee, and two “at-large” members. The task force will be charged with developing a proposal for the Board to consider at the January 2024 meeting. If you would like to be considered for this task force, please click HERE.
