Regulatory / Legislative Committee
Nancy Ehrlich, RVT - Chair and Liaison
A CaRVTA Regulatory/Legislative Committee member is in attendance at all VMB, RVT Task Force, and MDC meetings to report on information that is important to our members, as well as to represent CaRVTA when appropriate. The Leg/Reg Committee is looking for more committee members. If you are interested, be sure to e-mail Nancy Ehrlich at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most state meetings take place in Sacramento, although VMB meetings sometimes are scheduled for Southern California.
CaRVTA works hard to make sure our members' voices are heard in Sacramento, from representation at California's Veterinary Medical Board meetings, VMB committee meetings and the State legislature to member e-news and alerts. Your CaRVTA Board also works with the State government to promote legislation favorable to the RVT profession, such as adding an RVT to the VMB and granting title protection for RVTs. In addition to regulations and laws, the VMB is also the RVT licensing body. Below, we have listed important VMB tools and resources that student and professional RVTs will find useful throughout their careers.

The role of the CaRVTA Continuing Education (CE) Committee is to provide an approval process and certification of CE content. The aim of the Continuing Education Committee is to help provide quality CE content and record keeping. We will strive to provide the help needed by individuals who want to obtain accreditation for their organizational or individual presentation and/or training courses. Our vision of the California Registered Veterinary Technicians Association is dedicated to strengthening the veterinary health care team and promoting the role of the licensed RVT in the veterinary care profession.
The California Registered Veterinary Technicians Association is committed to helping our members become leaders in the RVT field. CaRVTA memberships are available to all individuals involved in the veterinary and animal care profession, from practicing California RVTs and industry providers to veterinary practice managers and students enrolled in a California RVT program. CaRVTA works hard to make sure our members' voices are heard in Sacramento. We represent RVTs at California's Veterinary Medical Board meetings, VMB committee meetings, and the State legislature. Your CaRVTA Board also works with the State government to promote legislation favorable to the RVT profession, such as adding an RVT to the VMB and granting title protection for RVTs.
