Senior Veterinarians

The Senior Veterinarians Council is a group of veterinarians that are either life members, inactive members or retired from veterinary practice. The council typically meets 3-4 times a year often combining their meetings with a social or educational activity. These events and activities are open to all MVMA members and their guests. Dr. Dick Olson is currently the chair of the Senior Vets Council.  If you are interested in learning more about this group or joining, please contact the MVMA office at 651-645-7533 or info@mvma.org.
