From the Desk of the Executive Vice President...
I just want to thank everyone for
paying their 2012 board certification dues. This year I don’t have many invoices
to resend and those are most likely because of email address changes. If you
have not changed your address on the website, please do that. If you have not
received your dues invoice yet shoot me an email please. I sent them out in
December and January.
This year we had 81 applications to
take the test in June. They are busy studying so if you come across one of them
please ask them if there is anything you can do to help.
We just had the exam committee
meeting last week and discussed this year’s essay questions. They are super easy
and everyone will pass……ha ha. The multiple choice questions have now been put
into a database which should make it easier to weed out the bad questions and
enter new more updated questions.
If you are interested in becoming a member of a committee please go
to the website
http://www.acvpm.org/Leadership.aspx and contact the Chair of that
committee. You can see what the committees do by looking at the Constitution and
By Laws on the website under: Other Info tab/Library.
Don’t forget about AVMA this year in San Diego. The Annual meeting will be on
Sunday from 3 to 6pm. I have not received the location yet but usually it’s near
the Conference Center. We will also have a booth there so please stop by and
better yet, volunteer to work there – you can volunteer by con-tacting Dr. Patti
