The Ohio Veterinary Medical Association is a non-profit organization providing services to its members in the areas of continuing education, advocacy on public policy matters, and access to variety of professional resources. The OVMA represents over 2,400 veterinarians practicing in various fields and specialties. The organization has been serving its members and the public since 1884.

The OVMA's principal purpose and mission is to foster life-long learning, stewardship, compassion and community in veterinary medicine. It is governed by a 27-member Board of Directors. The work of the Board and its volunteer committees is guided by Board strategic direction and the organization's By-Laws.

Every year, the OVMA hosts the Midwest Veterinary Conference (MVC), a growing, regional veterinary conference packed with opportunities for every aspect of the veterinary profession. From veterinarians to staff and students, there is something for everyone.

The conference includes more than 400 hours of continuing education, a 98,000-square-foot exhibit hall with 250+ booths, hands-on computer labs and wet labs and a wide selection of social functions for networking.
