ICVA Award Recipients

ICVA presented awards to two long-time volunteers at the June ICVA Board Meeting.

ICVA is proud to announce Dr. Gary Gackstetter as our 2022 ICVA Award recipient. Gary has volunteered with ICVA for 20+ years and helped conduct a the highly successful 2017 NAVLE practice analysis, including surveys of veterinarians across the U.S. and Canada, that shaped the current NAVLE.

Additionally, decades-long ICVA volunteer Dr. Rick Tubbs is the recipient of our ICVA Volunteer Award. Since the early 2000s, Dr. Tubbs has had extensive involvement with ICVA, including serving on the Board of Directors and multiple committees, acting as a NAVLE Item Writer, and participating in numerous NAVLE Pool and Form Review meetings.

We thank both award winners for their notable and dedicated work with ICVA and commitment to making innovative advancements in the veterinary assessment field.
