Get Involved

Volunteers have always been the core strength and driving force of the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association. The OVMA offers a broad spectrum of volunteer opportunities in which you can contribute to your professional community. Find your interest, your passion, your skill, and then join your colleagues in making a difference. Not only will veterinary medicine benefit, but so too will you expand your network of colleagues, your knowledge, and the sense that you are together capable of something far greater.
