​​​​To be considered for membership, you must be a veterinary practice owner, manager, administrator or team lead in a veterinary hospital in or around the greater Houston area.


If you are applying for the first time or if you are an existing Team Lead who has been recently promoted to management, you will need to complete a Membership application  and Task Analysis.   If you are Renewing your membership, you will only need to complete the Membership Application.


We keep HVPMA closed to others, such as vendors and pharmaceutical reps, so managers and practice leads can feel comfortable speaking freely, asking questions, and getting valuable feedback from a known audience. 


Due to the growth of our membership and the specific needs of the group, HVPMA has created two groups.  One is made up of administrators, practice owners and managers.  The other group is made up of practice leads (ie. head CSR, head tech, etc.). 


Each group has their own closed Facebook page. Team Leads will not have access to the Practice Managers closed Facebook page and vice versa. This will enable both groups an avenue to speak freely and ask questions.


After your application and membership payment have been processed, you will receive on invitation to join the Facebook page. Facebook is one of the most utilized and valuable benefits to HVPMA membership.  HVPMA members can post questions on numerous topics from who do you use for your oxygen to employee issues.  Important meetings and social functions are also posted on Facebook.


If you would like information regarding membership, sponsorship, getting involved, or have any other questions, please email us at info@hvpma.com or click the links above to apply.  You will be able to pay for your membership with the online application. The cost for membership to the Practice Managers group is $195.00, Team Leads is $95.00. HVPMA currently offers a discount when multiple applicants belonging to the same hospital apply for membership.  We look forward to hearing from you. ​
