The AVMA convenes the Veterinary Information Forum every 6 months as part of the House of Delegates meeting. The purpose of the Veterinary Information Forum is to allow the membership to bring forward and discuss emerging topics that affect the profession. The House of Delegates considers information from the forum and recommends action to address the issue. One such issue identified in 2016, was cyberbullying. As an outcome of discussion during the veterinary information forum, a hotline for support was established.
