IVMA President
Dr. Maria Cooper

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year! Our IVMA staff is officially settled into the association’s new headquarters at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The offices are on the 2nd floor of Discovery Hall, which some of you may be familiar with as the old 4-H Girls’ Dormitory, a building that saw its heyday in the 70’s.
