PVMA Veterinary Team Affiliate Program (previously Paraprofessional Support Program)


In 2011, the PVMA introduced a Paraprofessional Support Program as a direct result of feedback collected from a membership survey. This program was developed to increase involvement and better support our invaluable team members (technicians, assistants, managers, CCRs, etc). The program, now called the Veterinary Team Affiliate Program, will offer technicians and veterinary team members CE opportunities, a digital version of the PVMA newsletter, and inclusion in PVMA emails and mailings at a substantially reduced rate from the veterinarian member rate. 

As we continue to grow this program, we welcome any suggestions and input of how we can make it the most beneficial to you, please contact the PVMA office to share your thoughts.

Benefits of this program:


PVMA Technician and Assistant Shortage and Retention Taskforce


In the Spring of 2016, the PVMA formed a taskforce to address the shortage of veterinary technicians and assistants in our community. This taskforce is made up of PVMA member veterinarians, Oregon Veterinary Technician an Assistant Association board members, and technicians from a variety of backgrounds. This taskforce will be facilitating a number of events and programs in 2017 and being a part of the VTA program, will provide participants with the most current information!


Please visit our dedicated taskforce page for additional information and updates.

 • CE opportunities- While a majority of attendees at PVMA meetings and lectures are indeed veterinarians, we absolutely welcome veterinary technicians and other team members to attend!

No cost to attend any PVMA facilitated CE lectures and meetings unless otherwise specified- 35+ CE credits available annually (otherwise non-program participant cost will be $10/lecture).

• Inclusion on the PVMA email and mailing lists
CE lecture and event notices, news, member newsletter

• Tracking of PVMA CE credits throughout the year
PVMA will compile continuing education credits throughout the year and offer a cumulative certificate at the end of the year.

• PVMA Monthly Newsletter
A digital issue of the newsletter will be emailed each month



Cost: For 2017 calendar year; these may be subject to change in subsequent years.



This program is not equivalent to membership, therefore participants will not receive:
• Formal membership
• Voting privileges
• Hard copy of the monthly newsletter
• Free classified advertising (reilef technician ads are included)
• Discounted advertising
• Invitation to the Annual Member Veterinarian Holiday Party

Become a PVMA Veterinary Team Affiliate!
