Indiana state veterinarian Bret Marsh was elected president of the U.S. Animal Health Association (USAHA) at its 109th annual meeting in Hershey, PA.

The USAHA conference, with more than 1,400 attendees, achieved its fourth-consecutive year of record-breaking attendance at the week-long event.

“Over the next year, we will work together with input from the membership and, more specifically, from the board of directors to discover our core values,” says Marsh. “We will use this foundation to plan for the future strategically.”

President-elect of USAHA is Lee Myers, DVM, Georgia state veterinarian; other officers are James Leafstedt, South Dakota pork producer, first vice president; Don Hoenig, DVM, Maine state veterinarian, second vice president; Richard Breitmeyer, DVM, California state veterinarian, third vice president; William Hartmann, DVM, Minnesota state veterinarian, treasurer; and J. Lee Alley, DVM, retired Alabama state veterinarian, secretary.
