The California Registered Veterinary Technicians Association
is committed to helping our members become leaders in the RVT field.

CaRVTA memberships are available to all individuals involved in the veterinary and animal care profession,
from practicing California RVTs and industry providers to veterinary practice managers
and students enrolled in a California RVT program. CaRVTA works hard to make sure our members' voices
are heard in Sacramento.

We represent RVTs at California's Veterinary Medical Board meetings, VMB committee meetings,
and the State legislature. Your CaRVTA Board also works with the State government to promote legislation
favorable to the RVT profession, such as adding an RVT to the VMB and granting title protection for RVTs.
