Do you know a colleague or someone who has given unselfishly to the veterinary profession? Then nominate them for a CVMA Service Award!
CVMA Service Awards recognize these deserving individuals each year at the Celebration Luncheon held during the annual CVMA Convention.
It will mean so much to a person who is working for the benefit of everyone involved in veterinary medicine.
