Join CVMA on February 15 for a day-long workshop to build the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively advance (or thwart) public policy that affects the veterinary profession at the national and state levels. 

It is essential that lawmakers hear from engaged and knowledgeable constituents -- particularly in areas such as veterinary medicine where the lawmaker has little or no technical or practical experience. Federal and state lawmakers routinely offer bills that impose new stipulations or regulations in veterinary medicine. While some bills are proactively sought and supported by the AVMA and CVMA, other bills may have severe negative impacts on veterinary economics, the scope of veterinary practice, or they may be deleterious to animal health and welfare.

This workshop is designed to build issue knowledge, hone advocacy skills and bolster participants’ confidence in their ability to effectively advance the veterinary profession’s legislative and regulatory agenda. Participants will:

  • Learn about current legislative and regulatory issues (both Federal and state) from policy experts
  • Engage in discussions with speakers knowledgeable about relevant policy issues in veterinary medicine
  • Learn about grassroots lobbying and receive training on effective messaging techniques and protocol in communicating with legislators
  • Visit the state capitol and observe the legislative process in action

The morning and early afternoon sessions will be held at the CVMA office in central Denver (at 191 Yuma Street, Denver CO 80223). We will then travel to the State Capitol for a tour and to observe a committee hearing.
