What Does Your Membership in the NMVMA Do For You?
Advocacy for the NM Veterinarian The NMVMA retains a professional legislative consultant to monitor state legislation pertaining to veterinary medicine. Furthermore, the NMVMA maintains an active Legislative Committee which testifies in front of legislative committees, networks with legislators and state agencies and other pertinent associations. The NMVMA also works very closely with the AVMA through "legislative alerts"!
Find A Veterinarian! When clients contact the NMVMA or visit "Find a Veterinarian" online, we promote NMVMA members in their area. This allows the public to search for a veterinarian in their area, based on location, specialty, medical discipline and a variety of other filters.
The NMVVA maintains a solid working relationship with the NM Board of Veterinary Medicine (NMBOVM). We have representation at all NMBOVM meetings. Likewise, the NMBOVM submits a report to the NMVMA Executive Board meetings. This enables the NMVMA to monitor and provide input to the NMBOVM.
