What does the NEWVMA do?

The NEWVMA provides accredited continuing education with nationally recognized speakers and local specialists.  Members have the opportunity to learn from top professionals without having to travel far from home.


Professional networking, camaraderie and friendships are promoted and cultivated at association meetings, seminars and socials.


The association serves as a regional unified voice for the profession; addressing local issues, communicating with other groups, including the WVMA and the Wisconsin State Legislature.  The NEWVMA also works with corporations and other advocates of organized veterinary medicine.


The NEWVMA supports the next generation of "homegrown" veterinarians by sponsoring a scholarship each year for one or two University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine students who grew up in Northeastern Wisconsin.


What are the NEWVMA Socials and when are they held?

Activities at socials vary from entertainment (comedians, plays), tours (local farms, museums, nature preserves, and zoos), sporting events (Brewers and Timber Rattlers baseball, Packers Outings) and formal dinner banquets. Socials are held twice yearly typically in the spring or summer and again in the fall or winter.  Click here for more information on upcoming socials.

Who can become a Life Member?

Life Membership is granted to active members 65 years and older. Membership fees are waived, but membership must be renewed annually to continue receiving the benefits of membership.


Who can be a Board Member?

Members of the Board of Directors are NEWVMA members in good standing.  They are either elected (President-Elect), nominated by his or her successor (District Directors) or hired by the board (Executive Director). 

What does being a Board Member involve?

Board Members provide a service to local veterinarians by taking an active role in organized veterinary medicine.  They have a direct impact on influencing local and state policies as well as planning socials and continuing education opportunities. Board members also are involved in awarding the annual NEWVMA Scholarship.  There are five board meetings each year with two to three of those being held via teleconference; the remainder are held locally in the Appleton or Green Bay areas.

 What is CE on Demand?

Continuing Education on Demand is offered when members request a topic or suggest a speaker. Continuing Education Seminars can be for veterinarians as well as their team of technicians, assistants and receptionists.  The association will organize the seminar and provide certificates of attendance valid towards Wisconsin Veterinary License Renewal CE requirements. Information on upcoming NEWVMA CE events can be found here.
