President's Message

AABP In Action – What is GRD?

GRD is the acronym for the American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) Governmental Relations Division. As a professional liaison member of AVMA, the AABP is active in support of the efforts of this division to protect and advance the interests of veterinary medicine especially where there is specific relevance to cattle practice.

The mission of the AVMA GRD is: To actively promote the Association's federal legislative and regulatory priorities, monitor legislative developments, keep members updated on activities, influence congressional lawmakers and policymakers working for federal agencies and liaise with strategic partners.

Each spring the AABP Executive Committee travels to Washington, D.C. for two days of meetings at the AVMA GRD office where we have the opportunity to meet with other allied organizations and lobby on “The Hill”. The meeting this year is May 7-9. Each Executive Committee member has appointments scheduled with their respective district representatives in the Senate and Congress. The AVMA GRD staff hosts us, along with the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, to update us on the current AVMA agenda and action items as well as legislative issues affecting the livestock and veterinary industries.

Mission Statement

The American Association of Bovine Practitioners is an international association of veterinarians serving society as leaders in cattle health, welfare and productivity.
