CVMA Membership Benefits

Why I belong to CVMA…

CVMA’s 2016 Veterinarian of the Year, Dr. Melanie Marsden, talks about why CVMA membership matters.

Connections

Expand your network. Discuss your concerns with peers. Share your successes. Connect with your colleagues. Member meetings are held in 16 chapters throughout the state, offering a chance to connect with colleagues in your area, and the annual convention in September provides a lively forum for building and renewing your professional relationships.

Personal & Professional Development

CVMA offers outstanding opportunities for continuing education to keep you abreast of scientific developments, to expand your professional development and nontechnical skills, and to help you manage your practice efficiently and effectively. Look to CVMA for top-notch speakers who share their expertise at the annual convention, CE West and CE Southwest, the Professional Development Series, SkiCE, and a stellar lineup of offerings and webinars. CVMA members always receive special pricing on all of our educational offerings. View upcoming events here.

VOICE and eVOICE

CVMA members receive the award-winning VOICE quarterly magazine to keep you up-to-date on news about the association and veterinary medicine in Colorado. Premium and Core members receive the printed and digital copies of the magazine, while Basic members receive the digital version only.

And in between issues of the magazine, the weekly CVMA eVOICE email newsletter provides you with instant access to important news affecting you and veterinary medicine.

Members also have access to archives of VOICE and eVOICE.

Advocacy

CVMA is the collective voice for members in the professional, public, and state government arenas. The association maintains strong relationships with the State Board of Veterinary Medicine, AVMA, state and provincial VMAs, and organizations with allied interests.

One of the most vital and impactful things CVMA does is advocate on behalf of the veterinary profession in Colorado. We fight to make sure legislators know how proposed bills can help or hurt your livelihood, veterinary medicine, and animal health and welfare. Learn more here.

Members-Only Veterinary Resources

Your online member account gives you access to all the members-only sections of the CVMA website, such as the Veterinary Resources database, where you will find information on a variety of regulatory, scientific, business, and animal health and welfare issues. Your account also allows you to participate in members-only forums, browse past issues in the VOICE and eVOICE archives, and find colleagues using the searchable online member directory.

Referrals

Each month, nearly 400 prospective clients visit the Find a Veterinarian page, which allows them to search for CVMA member veterinarians.

Outreach

CVMA strives to expand the public’s understanding of and appreciation for veterinary medicine through initiatives such as the annual PetCheck program, which messages the importance of preventive veterinary care.
