US - The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is asking for input from its members to help shape the future of the association and the profession.

The AVMA is initiating the 'Future Critical Issues Scan' as part of its ongoing effort to reevaluate and revise its strategic plan, which was last approved by the AVMA Executive Board in April 2008. The AVMA hopes this scan will produce feedback from all segments of its diverse membership, which encompasses more than 80,000 veterinarians in private practice, government, industry, academia, research and uniformed services.

Dr Larry Corry, president of the AVMA, said: "The input and active participation of our membership has gotten us to the strong position we are in today. We need the continued input and participation of our members to get us to an even stronger position tomorrow."

Members of the AVMA can provide their feedback online [click here]. There, they will be asked to describe what they feel are the three most important issues facing the veterinary profession over the next five years.

Comments submitted by 20 March 2010, will be included in the April 2010 AVMA Executive Board discussion of the AVMA Strategic Plan. Comments received after that date will be included in future board discussions.
