The OAVT Board is made up of nine directors, including the president and vice-president.
The directors must be voting members of the OAVT (RVT members or Retired members), and they are elected into their position by the voting members of the association.
An election is held by the OAVT every February to fill open positions on the Board. A director’s term of office is two years. Learn more about becoming a Director.
According to OAVT Board Policy, on behalf of the members, the Board will govern with one voice through written policies with an emphasis on long-term goals.
