The MVMA Board of Directors met in November 2014 to set a direction that should be compelling to members and prospects of the MVMA. Through this strategic planning process, the Board of Directors proposed some updating and revisions to the current bylaws. In accordance to the Bylaws of the MVMA revisions made to the bylaws, "All proposals for alteration of the Constitution or Bylaws shall be stated in writing, and filed with the Secretary-Treasurer. No alteration proposed shall be acted upon until it has been referred to the Executive Committee and presented at an annual meeting. The members of the Association shall be notified at least ten days previous to final action thereon. Final adoption and the effective date of any amendment to the Bylaws duly presented to the Association shall be at least one business meeting after presentation and favorable action thereon."

Should you have any questions about the proposed amendments, please contact Dr. Bill Miller, MVMA President, or DeAnna Dillard, MVMA Executive Director.

WHAT IS THE MVMA?

The Mississippi Veterinary Medical Association is a non-profit association of veterinary professionals committed to the advancement of the science and art of veterinary medicine.  The Mississippi Veterinary Medical Association has more than 600 members who, through our organization, work together to serve the animals of Mississippi and their owners.  The MVMA is the liaison between veterinary medicine and our communities.  It is our goal to increase public awareness of the importance of veterinary medicine in disease control and animal health, as well as partnering with our communities to promote and encourage responsibility with pet ownership.

The MVMA works with our state legislature to promote the profession of veterinary medicine and protect the animals and owners that we serve.  It is the goal of the MVMA to be the association that lawmakers turn to when veterinary issues arise.  The MVMA maintains constant surveillance of legislative activity in Jackson, as well as promoting and supporting sound legislation as it affects veterinarians, pet owners and agriculture.

One of the goals of the MVMA is to provide exceptional continuing education opportunities for our members.  Our bi-annual continuing education conferences provide veterinarians with this most up-to-date information available so that our practitioners are always at the top of their field! We encourage you to attend one of our meetings whether to learn, network, or just reconnect with old friends.
