Talbot Education Committee
The Talbot Education Committee is tasked with the curating, managing, and running of the annual Talbot Symposium along with any associated educational tasks, sessions, or conferences. They are responsible for development of the symposia and any extensions of the symposia.
In June 2020, a subcommittee was formed to investigate options for ongoing virtual education opportunities run by AVI.
The Outreach Committee is responsible for growing the Association membership recruitment, and sponsorship, associated with the organization. This includes marketing, campaigns, and any other activities. This committee is supported by the Secretary.
The Interoperability Committee is tasked with promoting interoperability across the veterinary industry through the use of effective standards in the various data sources in veterinary medicine and other techniques such as natural language processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence. The Interoperability Committee will facilitate collaboration and formation of Stakeholder Groups and Working Groups to review, and propose changes to existing standards and techniques or development of new standards and techniques.
In April 2021, this group was converted from a taskforce to a standing committee via a bylaws amendment.
Ethics & Standards Committee
The Ethics and Standards committee is charged with upholding the spirit of AVI and maintaining overall quality of the activities. Any member may be referred to the committee for failure to follow the guidelines and procedures laid out in the bylaws. Any referral by nature is confidential and no discussion of the case shall be had outside of the specific members of the committee. At the conclusion of the discussion, if any action is to be taken, a recommendation to do so must be presented to the Executive Board.
In April 2021, this group was converted from a taskforce to a standing committee through a bylaws amendment. More to come from this group!
