NAVTA welcomes anyone in the veterinary industry, including credentialed veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, veterinarians, educators and students.  How can NAVTA help you?


NAVTA serves as the voice for the profession within the field, with tie-ins to AVMA and AAVSB allowing us to voice our positions and influence policy and regulation. 


The NAVTA Journal connects veterinary technicians (VT) around the world through state updates and provides information on current issues, up-to-date knowledge, and CE credits through its articles. 


NAVTA is the governing body of Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS) academies, helping elevate the profession through the establishment of VTS disciplines. NAVTA is also the governing body of the Approved Veterinary Assistant (AVA) programs, helping delineate tasks between veterinary assistants and Credentialed Veterinary Technicians.


NAVTAs Executive Board meets monthly to discuss hot topics and holds special sessions for voting. The Executive Director, President and President Elect meet weekly to navigate the hot topics. Committees meet regularly to carry out the initiatives of the executive board. The State Representative Committee communicates with each state association through state representatives designated by each association, and holds two leadership summits each year to discuss current VT issues and deliver knowledge, resources, and tools for professional advocacy.
