17 Jun Kim Brown Pokorny Resigns as WVMA Executive Director
Kim Brown Pokorny has resigned from her position as Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA) executive director to take on the role of Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s chief administrative officer.
Brown Pokorny served as WVMA executive director for 12 years, working with veterinarians and veterinary medical industry stakeholders to lead the association. She has worked diligently with legal and legislative counsel to ensure the veterinary medical field is represented, and has continuously encouraged change within the WVMA to keep it relevant and moving forward. In addition, Brown Pokorny was instrumental in the formation of the Food Armor Foundation and the Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Foundation.
“Kim has done an excellent job of advancing and promoting veterinary medicine in the state of Wisconsin,” says WVMA President Dr. Ann Sherwood Zieser. “She has worked tirelessly with our legal council to both prevent legislation that would put undue burden on us as veterinarians and to support legislation that helps advance our great profession.”
Brown Pokorny’s last day with the WVMA will be on August 5. The WVMA Executive Board has already begun the process of finding her successor.
