I’m back! First I’d like to thank Dr. Ken May for taking over for me and writing this column last month. He did a much better job talking about Legislative Day than my sleep-deprived self would have done at that time. Hopefully many of you participated in Legislative Day last week and represented the IVMA at the capital. We had a great Winter Conference last month with just under 400 attendees. I had the honor of announcing the new IVMA Life Members during the conference. A Life Member is an IVMA member who has been in good standing with the association for 40 years. Announcing their names and shaking their hands I couldn’t help but think how fortunate we are to be able to practice and do what we love because of the hard work and dedication to the profession of those who came before us.

Help Support Bill to make VMLRP Awards Tax Exempt
In 2017 Iowa leads the nation in awards in the USDA’s Veterinary Medicine Loan Repayment Program (VMLRP). The AVMA is pushing for the passage of the VMLRP Enhancement Act (H.R. 1268 / S. 487) which would exempt VMLRP awards from the current 39% withholding taxes.
The AVMA released this brief radio spot in Iowa featuring AVMA president Dr. Mike Topper in support of the VMLRP Enhancement Act. Please contact Iowa Senators Grassley and Ernst and Reps Blum and King and encourage them to support the VMLRP Enhancement Act (H.R. 1268 / S. 487). The AVMA has an online form that you can complete and it will be sent to your legislators.
All forms can be accessed from the Applicants page and the Application Guide is a good resource. Please note all applications are due by March 16, 2018 to be considered. Faxed and Emailed applications are not accepted.
