Wyoming Veterinary Medical Association

  • About
  • President's Greeting


We are grateful to have veterinarians like you in our membership. Your support allows the WVMA to promote the health and welfare of animals in Wyoming, to provide continuing education for Wyoming veterinarians and surrounding states, and to be the voice of Wyoming veterinarians in matters of public issues. The WVMA strives to bring value and high-quality experiences to members. To continue providing two high-quality CE conferences and maintain a legislative presence year-round, membership dues were raised this year. We hope you will join or continue your membership with the WVMA by renewing online or returning the enclosed form. Membership runs from April 1, 2024 through March 31, 2025. Your membership dues support:

Legislative ActionThe WVMA retains a lobbyist year-round to actively monitor all legislation that may affect veterinarians. With the lobbyist serving as our eyes and ears at the Capitol during the legislative session and the interim, we can be proactive in the legislative process. Through the work of the lobbyist and the WVMA board members, the WVMA has advocated for Wyoming veterinarians within the state legislature for the past many years. In 2022, a committee was formed to research veterinary technician licensure in response to legislative discussions. The committee presented preliminary documents to WVMA members outlining the proposed process/language of veterinary technician licensure. After reviewing feedback from members, the Board decided to schedule additional time for discussion during the annual membership meeting in Cody.

Quality CE - Every year, the WVMA hosts two multi-day meetings that offer great continuing education organized by the current association president. We hope you will join us for at least one of the meetings!  It is a great time to establish camaraderie with your fellow veterinarians and knock out those continuing education requirements for licensure. The Summer Meeting will be June 9 – 11, 2024 and held in Cody, WY.  It will include both small and large animal sessions plus 3 hours of controlled substance CE. Members will receive an email and brochure in the mail when registration opens. The Winter Meeting is scheduled for December 6 – 7, 2024 at the Holiday Inn in Casper. We are also excited to offer discounted, on-demand opioid CE through an online RACE-approved course. The Opioid 411 Anytime course fulfills the controlled substance CE requirement for license renewals.

Leadership OpportunitiesThe Board of Directors is actively involved at both the state and national levels. Serving on the WVMA Board of Directors is a great chance to develop your leadership skills, learn more about the happenings at the state level, and attend the Veterinary Leadership Conference in January. If you are interested in learning more, please contact a Board member, we would love to visit with you!
