"As an educator of veterinary technicians, the OVMA has been invaluable. Being a part of this organization keeps me informed about all the latest trends and changes within our dynamic profession so I can give my students the most up-to-date information."

—Dr. Angela Beal, Program Director, Vet Tech Institute at Bradford School


"Participating in OVMA committees and the Leadership Institute provides opportunities for networking and collaborating with colleagues across the state and disciplines. Involvement in OVMA activities broadens my veterinary community beyond private practice walls."

"While veterinary medicine may have evolved over the last several years to include technological marvels, point-of-care diagnostics, and computerized record-keeping, one constant has remained—those
who devote their lives to this profession. The Ohio Veterinary Medical Association has been a focal point for such individuals, providing leadership and resources to support our continual quest for better patient care. OVMA membership is an opportunity to be a part of this select group and to help lead our profession into a bright future."
