Schaumburg, Ill. -- Dr. H. Theodore Trimmer, of Las Vegas, is the newest member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Executive Board.

Trimmer was elected to replace Dr. David L. McCrystle, whose term expired. Trimmer will represent California, Hawaii and Nevada.

“One of the most important goals I have is to maintain rigorous education standards of the AVMA and the Council on Education,” Trimmer says. “I also think that it’s essential that the AVMA maintain its great value to its members during these tough economic times while also reaching out to all of our members, but particularly to younger members, to communicate to them the many things that the AVMA does for them.”

Prior to joining the executive board, Trimmer served as the Nevada representative on the AVMA House of Delegates. He is a trustee and former chairperson of the AVMA Group Health Life Insurance Trust.

The University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine graduate owns several small-animal practices in the Las Vegas metropolitan area.
