Volunteer with Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association’s Membership Department
Volunteer to assist with all aspects of HSVMA's Membership department’s activities
The Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA) was formed as a home for veterinary professionals who want to engage in direct care programs for animals in need and educate the public and others in the profession about animal welfare issues.
HSVMA’s Membership department provides the planning and oversight of the membership function of HSVMA. It is responsible for all member services including benefit package development and implementation, renewals, database, marketing, awards and event organization. Membership is looking for volunteers (click to view expanded position description) to assist with all aspects of the department’s activities. Work is performed in our Gaithersburg, Md., office during standard business hours (9 am-5 pm).

Volunteers will learn about association membership and foster an understanding of animal protection issues while helping to support the missions of The HSUS and HSVMA.
