NJVMA Board Apprentice Applications Now Open

NJVMA Board Apprentice Applications Now Open


Every year the NJVMA selects a Board Apprentice from the New Jersey veterinarian community. Our Board Apprentice receives a scholarship to join New Jersey’s delegation at the AVMA Veterinary Leadership Conference (VLC) as our NJ Representative Rising Leader (currently scheduled for January 7-10, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois). The scholarship covers the cost of registration, travel, hotel and meals while attending the conference. The NJVMA Board Apprentice is then able to serve on the Board of Directors as a non-voting member the year following the conference. NJVMA Veterinarian members who graduated in the last 15 years are eligible to apply.
