Membership Fees

The New Jersey Veterinary Medical Association follows a Practice Membership structure which incorporates all practice team members (veterinarians and staff) under one membership. This allows for greater opportunities for associate veterinarians and veterinary practice team members to benefit from the programs and services offered by our association. While the NJVMA recognizes that our membership structure is designed to incorporate the entire practice, individual veterinarian memberships are available. Solo practitioners, industry veterinarians and government service veterinarians are encouraged to join!

Membership Types

Any fixed or mobile establishment, veterinary hospital, animal hospital, or premises where the practice of veterinary medicine is conducted may join as a Practice Member. All graduate veterinarians working the equivalent of full-time for the practice will be deemed active members, and will have the right to vote and hold elected office.

Individual memberships are available to ensure the inclusion of solo practitioners, industry veterinarians and government service veterinarians. Graduate veterinarians employed in the State of New Jersey may join as Individual members, and possess the rights of active members.

A student in a school or college of veterinary medicine recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

A member in good standing who has reached the age of 70 and has maintained active membership in the Association for a period of 30 years and is retired from the active practice of veterinary medicine.

NJVMA Membership Fees
