Why be a member?



If you’re an Australian veterinarian, you can’t afford not to be involved with the only organisation representing your profession.


Joining forces with other veterinarians is the only way to influence governments and the community on issues that matter to you.

The professional community of the AVA keeps you connected to your fellow veterinarians, as well as to the cutting edge of science.

Our Centre for Professional Success gathers together all the information and tools you need for a successful career and business. The AVA’s 20 Special Interest Groups and continuing professional development program Vet Ed help you stay current as well as meet your registration requirements.

Whether you’re studying, retiring or anywhere in between, valuable member benefits have been designed with you in mind. Choose the option that best describes you to see what else the AVA has to offer.
