AVMA Update – April 2021

Aloha Colleagues!

Before I share with you the many programs the American Veterinary Medical Association has available for all members, I did want to take this opportunity to send a huge virtual Mahalo to you for your support of my candidacy for the AVMA Board of Directors District X Representative. Although I was not chosen, I am grateful to have been on the ballot – Mahalo!

We, Carolyn Naun (alternate delegate) and I (Delegate and State Advocacy Committee Member), will continue to represent Hawaii proudly at the House of Delegate meetings. If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
