MOVTA has several opportunities for MO technicians to become involved in the organization and our profession.
The MOVTA is looking for a few charismatic and driven RVTs to help serve on our board. The Board consists of working RVTs in the state of Missouri who volunteer their time to publish a quarterly newsletter, maintain a website with job ads and information pertinent to the field, and to create a free five-hour CE conference for all members. We are always looking for additional volunteers to help lessen the workload. We have a need for a wide variety of roles.
Applicants must be full voting members of MOVTA (unless otherwise designated) working in the state of MO. All positions will require participation in mandatory scheduled board meetings (you may phone in), participation in board discussions and decisions, as well as the possibility of travel to different areas of the state. All board positions are NON PAID, VOLUNTEER positions and no compensation will be awarded for time spent on board or committee duties.
The Student Representative shall act as liaison between MOVTA and other students in Missouri's veterinary technology programs/SCNAVTA chapters and shall provide quarterly updates for the newsletter and social media. S/he is also responsible for promoting and organizing our annual student scholarship, as well as promoting MOVTA to MO programs.
Vet Tech of the Year
The VToTY committee chairperson is responsible for the promotion and execution of our annual Vet Tech of the Year Award.
District Representatives - coming soon
District Representatives help streamline communication between MOVTA and area technicians. This may include running and maintaining a region-specific facebook page for that area, reporting CE events, job postings, etc. They represent the views of their constituents and be voting members of the Board of Directors, inform the district membership of actions pending and actions taken by the Board of Directors, and run a local social media group to keep counties in their district informed of MOVTA news as well as local CE events, job opportunities, etc.
