  • You earned less than $40,000 from all sources (not just veterinary sources) in the last year before tax.
  • You are in your first, second or third year after finishing your veterinary degree.
  • Your husband, wife or partner is an AVA member and is paying the full membership fee. You’ll need to share a residential address and be financially interdependent – that is, you share a mortgage, pool your incomes, or otherwise support the household together. Your home address will need to be the AVA’s main contact address for both members, and you’ll only receive one copy of the Australian Veterinary Journal. Both of you will be entitled to all other benefits of being a full AVA member.
