Our advocacy and the veterinary profession depend on the knowledge and dedication of veterinarians like you!
One of the most powerful ways to make your voice heard happens this February in Atlanta. The GVMA's Veterinarians' Day at the Capitol, Tuesday, February 4, 2014 provides a unique opportunity for GVMA members to come together, learn from experts and talk with state lawmakers and officials about how their decisions at the state level affect local communities and the veterinary profession.
Please call your legislator and invite him or her to attend the lunch. It’s convenient and free – why wouldn’t they want to attend? Plus, this is your chance to introduce your legislator to veterinary medicine. Call the GVMA at 678-309-9800 for assistance.
