Maryland’s 90-day legislative session began with a lot of uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our presiding officers, Senate President Bill Ferguson and House Speaker Adrienne Jones worked all interim on health and safety protocols, incredible technology upgrades and some significant tweaks to the legislative process. Aside from the legislators, press, and a few select staff, the State House complex was closed to lobbyists, advocates, and the general public. Going virtual meant that Compass lobbyists and clients zoomed in to testify in bill hearings, attend work sessions, and meet with legislators.
The Maryland Veterinary Foundation is seeking current MDVMA members who bring life experience, diverse outlooks, and a passion for giving to join the Board of Trustees.
MDVF Trustees are stewards of the foundation's assets. Responsibilities include a clear understanding of the foundation's mission, active participation in meetings and fundraising events, and monitoring of investment performance and activities to ensure appropriate and demonstrable impact.
Want to make a difference in the lives of Maryland's future veterinarians? Contact Marisa Francis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need contributions from every veterinarian throughout the state to help us accomplish our legislative goals in Annapolis. Without a healthy PAC, the MDVMA will be limited in our ability to influence the legislative process.
