Happy New Year!
Thank you so much for choosing to be a part of the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association. You are a valuable member of our veterinary community here in Hawaii, and we welcome you to be active with us! As a non-profit organization, the HVMA serves as our local veterinarians’ public face and collective voice.
This year we will seek to improve the accessibility of the HVMA to its members in various ways. Our website has undergone tremendous upgrades and continues as a work in progress in providing services such as an online public membership directory, as well as job postings and relief vet listings for members. Our transition to electronic communication continues with improved online membership registration and our first e-newsletter!
We have many areas that members can volunteer to contribute to, such as with Membership outreach, Public Relations, Newsletter production, Legislative action, and Website updates. All of our current progress has come about from members seeing areas of need in our organization, and stepping up to offer their services. We are so grateful for every cog in our wheel, and we welcome any input or help you can offer to improve our HVMA.
If you are interested in getting involved and would like more information, let us know! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicate your interest when you complete your membership registration online, or find a board member to speak with directly.
Wishing you good health, growth, and abundant aloha in 2017!
On behalf of your HVMA Board,
Jill Yoshicedo, DVM
