The Board of Veterinary Medicine has an opening for one public member to serve on the Large Animal Complaint Review Committee. Applicants may not or ever have been, a member of the veterinary profession, the spouse of any such person, or have a material financial interest in either the provision of veterinary service or an activity directly related to the profession.
Board members are considered volunteers. However, a member does receive a modest per diem for time spent on the work of the Board and travel to the Board meetings. The time commitment for a public member is 3 - 6 Board meetings/year for an entire afternoon; 10 - 20 complaint review conferences of 2 hours each/year; and 1-2 hours a week reviewing complaint files. The terms are for 4 years, and members can reapply for 2nd and 3rd terms.
The Minnesota Secretary of State's Office is now accepting applications for the open position. These will be reviewed by the Governor who will make the appointment. The new Board member’s term will begin January 1, 2017. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
The Secretary of State's link to online applications can be found on the home page under the Boards and Commissions section. The quick link to the page is: https://commissionsandappointments.sos.state.mn.us/Agency/Details/103
