28 Jun Together, We’re Stronger……

IVMA is in the final phase of membership renewal for the upcoming fiscal year, July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018.  As the Executive Director, I am often asked two questions – what do you do and why should I renew my membership (or join).  These are great questions.  Here are my answers:

What does IVMA do?  The IVMA features many tools and resources for veterinarians to use in the course of their practice life.  This may include legislative monitoring, continuing education, legal resources, important data, educating members on the latest trends, and providing tools and resources for veterinary wellbeing, just to name a few.  Associations are a lot like insurance.  When you don’t have any issues or problems, you don’t need your insurance.  The beauty of IVMA though, is that we are always here as a resource, whether you need us or not.   For 64 cents a day, you are a member of an active and well-run association that advocates for its members and for veterinary medicine in Indiana.

Why should I renew my membership?  IVMA is a community of veterinarians that are passionate about veterinary medicine and the patients/clients that they serve. Membership is an investment in you and in your career.  Belonging and volunteering bring credibility to your career and connect you with your peers. It is difficult to put a dollar value on the networking, collegiality and connection you possess with your membership. The synergy provided by IVMA is priceless.  IVMA provides the opportunity, resources, and forum for creative and productive ideas to come to fruition, meeting veterinarians’ common needs and goals.
