State of the DV Academy Presented by Dr. Kathryn Stoltzfus at General Membership Meeting on May 9, 2018
We currently have 278 members compared to 269 last year at this time. We have been averaging 183 attendees per seminar this year compared to 165 last year.
We have 38 sponsors, including Merial/Boehringer-Ingelheim and Zoetis which are double sponsors, who have contributed nearly $46,000 to our operating budget reducing membership fees by approximately $160+ per member. Please take the time to visit and thank them today and whenever they exhibit at the DV Academy.
We continue efforts to attract recent graduate members to the DV Academy by expanding the recent graduate classification from one year out from graduation to 5 years out (since January 1, 2013). Recent graduates are invited to attend the seminar in June as our guests.
The following individuals have been nominated to the DV board of directors:
Vice President: Dr. Ravi Murarka, Treasurer: Dr. Leslie Gall; Secretary: Dr. Jyothi Surendran
Director: Dr. Kara Stover. As there were no additional nominees from the floor, the slate was approved by voice vote.
