Board of Directors

The Board of Directors consists of the Executive Committee, the elected officers of the OVMA, plus eight elected regional directors. The Board is charged with shaping, directing and carrying out OVMA policies and guidelines. Ex-officio members of the Board also include a representative from allied industry, practice managers, and technicians. The OVMA Executive Director serves in a non-voting capacity.

The Executive Board has the authority to conduct urgent business that cannot wait between regular meetings of the Board of Directors. Meetings of the Executive Board are determined and directed by the President, with the assistance of the Executive Director.
