A global voice for aquatic veterinarians

Chris Walster - Wavma President

Welcome (Nick Saint-Erne WAVMA President)

Happy New Year to all WAVMA Members!

2016 is WAVMA's 10th year. We have had great successes as an organization over our first decade, with many more exciting programs to come.
Look for continued WebCEPD classes, an online veterinary tele-conference, monthly industry updates via our eNewsletter, more clinical discussions on the listserv, and original articles and pertinent information in our quarterly journal, 'The Aquatic Veterinarian'.
Soon we will announce our plans for an exciting Annual General Meeting with Aquatic Veterinary CE and tour opportunities.
Thanks to the great work of all our Board and Committee members over the past year, especially to our esteemed outgoing President, Chris Walster. These dedicated volunteers bring you all the great benefits provided for your annual membership dues.
Hoping you all have a happy, peaceful and prosperous 2016.

What is WAVMA?

WAVMA has been able to organise aquatic veterinary educational programs or streams at the WVA Congress since 2005 and, from this year, an aquatics stream at the WSAVA Congress for the first time ever. Through these affiliations, WAVMA has been able to build bridges with numerous veterinary and non-veterinary organisations around the world, including OIE and FAO. Consequently, WAVMA has promoted aquatic veterinary medicine within our profession but also to those outside the profession.
As an organisation with global reach, it is important that we continue to be the conduit of shared knowledge to improve, promote and expand aquatic veterinary medicine. WAVMA is an altruistic organisation prepared to share and build resources for the benefit of the aquatic veterinary community globally 

2016 WAVMA Programs

WAVMA once again has organised educational programs or will have a presence at several meetings around the world. Please see WAVMA's Meetings and Conferences page for meetings which WAVMA will organise or contribute to. Come along and meet some of the WAVMA team.
If travel is not your thing then get your CEPD through WAVMA’s, WebCEPDClinical Corner and e-News. Keep an eye on Members-L, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter for further information.
WAVMA’s quarterly publication The Aquatic Veterinarian is now indexed (ISSN 2329 – 5562) and includes peer reviewed papers. Our thriving listserv provides contact with professional colleagues, meetings and job vacancies globally. Membership brings many other benefits including discounts on text books and webinars and access to scholarships.
WAVMA membership means being part of the largest aquatic veterinary association which actively strives to achieve its Mission Statement. With the 2016 programs that are in place, your membership dues will save you  $100's annually in member discounts and services.
WAVMA is an Affiliate member of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) and an Associate member of the World Veterinary Association (WVA).
