Dear AVF Members,
On November 15, 2021, the Board of Directors of the AVF and the Board of Directors of the AVFF voted unanimously to approve a merger of the AVF and AVFF. We have included links to the Plan of Merger and a copy of the article that will appear in the upcoming issue of the AVF newsletter, Vein Specialist, for your review. We will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting (webinar format) on Tuesday, November 23, at 6:00pm ET to address this topic for our members and answer any questions you may have. Please look for a calendar invite. Until then, we invite you to make any comments or ask any questions by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Immediately following the Town Hall Meeting, we will be distributing a ballot to voting members of the AVF and encourage all voting members to vote. Voting members of the AVF include the following membership categories: Physician Members (US and International), Distinguished Fellows, and Senior Member. Voting will close on December 15, 2021, as required by our bylaws.
We look forward to hearing from you.
