If the candidate is favorably approved by the directors, such candidate shall become a supporting member. No supporting member may hold an elective office or vote on any matter nor have any rights or title to or interest in any real or personal property of the Association.

The MVMA is a vital and growing organization, working for the enhancement of the veterinary profession and its members. Your support of the profession is important to us because the veterinary community is small and today's issues require close communication and strong internal support.

Showing your support for the MVMA through your membership also helps you stay in touch with what Minnesota veterinarians are doing when you receive the bi-monthly newsletter. As an exhibitor, supporting members receive first consideration for booth placement and may also attend any of the seminars at the annual meeting at no additional fee beyond the fee for your booth. As a supporting member, you have access to the membership directory.
