"The role of the veterinary practitioner in the production of wholesome food presents both a challenge and an opportunity for our membership. Significant groundwork has been laid by our leadership and I accept the chance to further that effort. Simultaneously, the need to solidify the positions and expand the horizons of our individual members to capture the rewards of a changing industry demands strong member services from your association. I welcome the opportunity to assist in that regard."
