Dear AAZV Members:
The American Association of Wildlife
Veterinarians and AAZV hold many similarities in their respective missions
and objectives, including our mutual interest in non-domestic animals
and important conservation issues. As a member of AAZV, you might
find that joint membership in AAWV could provide you with additional
benefits and resources.
Member dues are the primary source of
revenue for AAWV and enable the production of newsletters, provide important
AAWV representation for wildlife veterinarians at national meetings,
and pay for cutting edge speakers at conferences we jointly organize.
Your dues will allow AAWV officers, advisory COUNCIL, and member volunteers to
serve you as a wildlife veterinarian. In the upcoming year we will become
more politically active in national policies with position statements
and resolutions involving animal welfare, wildlife disease, and the ecological
connections spanning human, domestic animal, and wildlife health issues.
We will also begin implementation of our newly developed Strategic Plan.
The goals within this plan were designed to chart a course for the
organization that will allow it to exceed the expectations of members
by adding significant value to individual membership and by raising
the profile of organized wildlife veterinary medicine at the national
level. The plan can be accessed at http://www.aawv.net/AAWVFiveYrStratPlanFinal.pdf.
The easiest way to join or renew is to
go to the membership application page on the website at http://www.aawv.net/memberapplication.htm , fill out the renewal form, and send a check
