strengthening the veterinary

regulatory community

Member Services

Member Services encourage active participation by all Member Boards and provide quality resources that assist Member Boards in their regulatory mission. The AAVSB acts to best serve its members by being responsive, resourceful, and always striving for continuous quality improvement.

New Member Service - State & Provincial Assessments

The AAVSB is now offering a new service: Administration of online state & provincial specific jurisprudence examinations for Member Boards. These exams ensure licensure applicants understand local statutes, rules, and regulations. Many jurisdictions already administer these exams. Consider taking advantage of this new AAVSB service and relieve the administrative burden on your licensing board. Additionally, out-of-state applicants can easily complete the exam online, lessening the applicants' travel burden. For more information, contact Lainie Franklin at
