The Board of Veterinary Medicine is seeking applicants for two Board positions to serve on the Small Animal Complaint Committee. Applicants must have an active Minnesota veterinary license, be a resident of Minnesota and have practiced veterinary medicine in this state for at least five years prior to their appointment.
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 meetings. The time commitment for a veterinarian on the Small Animal Complaint Review Committee are: 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 Secretary of State's Office is now accepting applications for the open positions. These will be reviewed by the Governor who will make the appointments. The new Board member’s term will begin January 1, 2018. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
