Customized home pages, vastly improved online networking services and the ability for members to provide input on association policy decisions are the cornerstones of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) new website (

The website redesign helps make the AVMA’s numerous resources more readily available to members, improves functionality and enhances the overall online experience. Members can now build their own homepage from a multitude of topics of personal interest, and the process of signing up for newsletters and other resources has been streamlined.

The new website design also strives to make the AVMA’s numerous resources easier to manage for member veterinarians. To this end, the new website includes the Knowledge Base, a system that allows members to organize the AVMA’s thousands of resources on a single topic, discipline or species in one place, including everything from AVMA policies and press releases to backgrounders and brochures.

The new AVMA website has an improved AVMA Network of Animal Health (NOAH), which offers AVMA discussion groups for veterinarians.

The August update was phase 1 of a three-phase launch of the new and improved website. The redesign of the website is expected to be completed by April 1, 2013.
