Board of Directors Meets at Fall Conference

The VMAE Board of Directors met in San Diego prior to the fall conference. Highlights from that meeting include:

  • Initiating an amendment to the VMAE bylaws to clarify that VMAE may discipline a member for failure to comply with its rules, principles of ethics, or policies. The amendment will be circulated to the membership for vote shortly.
  • Approving VMAE signing on to the Gender Identity Bill of Rights.
  • Approving several recommendations from the VMAE DEI Committee, including development of a publicly displayed nondiscrimination and anti-harassment policy, and a code of conduct for educational events and meetings.
  • Approving applications from Chewy and whiskerDocs to join the VMAE Strategic Initiative Partner program. We look forward to meeting and welcoming representatives from our two new partners at VMAE events next year.
