MVMA Volunteer Positions

The MVMA is not currently seeking volunteers for any particular positions, however, we are always looking for members who want to be more involved in our Board or committees. Our Legislative Committee and Continuing Education Committee both need volunteers. If you are interested in either of these committees, or in participating on the MVMA Board, please contact Katherine Soverel ([email protected]).

Other Opportunities

During these challenging times, Dr. Coville in Aroostook County would like to offer a small “future” opportunity for recovery and recuperation. Once the Covid-19 crisis is behind us, and the restrictions on casual movement are lifted – a “get-away” might be just what you want as a stepping stone to a brighter and more normal tomorrow. Dr. Coville has a rustic cabin on the shore of a 16,000 acre lake. The front windows look out across 2 miles of water to a wooded Canadian shoreline. The location is 3 miles in off the pavement on a well kept dirt road. The vast surrounding acreage is sparsely occupied with much of it in conservation easement. The camp itself offers all the expected features and services including Internet and Wifi. A limited number of “post-Covid rejuvenation opportunities” will be offered to fellow Maine veterinarians by Dr. Coville once the State allows such actions. If interested please inquire at [email protected] regarding details, dates, and terms of use. Good Luck and Best of Health to Everyone.
