The Florida Veterinary Medical Association (FVMA) provides numerous tangible benefits to its members including quality continuing education, professional publications, information resources, and discounts on personal and professional services, programs, and products. But some of the most valuable benefits derived from membership in the FVMA are intangible. The Association provides a powerful voice for the veterinary medical profession, and works to affect policies, regulations, and legislation, in order to protect the veterinary profession, veterinarians’ livelihood, and the well-being of patients and clients.
FVMA offers classic DVM membership, with bonus inclusion for equine veterinarians in the Florida Association of Equine Practitioners (FAEP), as well as team member memberships.
The FVMA’s Legislative Committee and our staff are constantly monitoring any proposed legislation that could affect the veterinary profession. Our statewide network of members contact legislators whenever necessary to protect the interests of our membership. The FVMA also retains the lobbying firm Converge Government Affairs to ensure that the “good bills pass” and the “bad bills don’t.”
FVMA Annual Conference (small animal/exotic), The Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference (small animal/exotic), Promoting Excellence Symposium (equine), FVMA Regionals (small animal), Ocala Equine Conference (equine), and Harvey Rubin Memorial Food Animal Conference, as well as online courses, provide affordable opportunities for CE. These conferences expand the skills and knowledge of attendees while offering a chance to network, professionally and socially, with colleagues and industry partners in the veterinary medical field.
