Your Association Needs You- Committee Leadership Boosts Engagement and Professional Development

The SAVMA Board of Directors is pleased to announce our new Committee structure and we are inviting you to participate. This is a great way to engage with your peers and to take an active role in strengthening volunteerism in our community. Committees meet every other month for one hour, because we know your time is valuable. We are Volunteer Managers after all. An overview of the work of the committees is below, but the charters can be found in the Policy Section of our website. Those interested in working with this enthusiastic team can contact us through the website.
