Dr. Bianca Zenor Appointed as AVMA Chief Membership Officer

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) proudly welcomes Dr. Bianca Zenor, who joined the organization on March 25 as the Chief Membership Officer.

In her new role, Dr. Zenor will lead the Membership and Field Services, Convention and Meeting Planning divisions, and the Veterinary Career Center group, aiming to enhance the value provided to AVMA members.

“With record membership numbers and the successes of our key initiatives and events, the time is right to consolidate these areas under a Chief Membership Officer to create greater synergy and elevate our member services,” stated Dr. Janet Donlin, AVMA CEO. Dr. Zenor will report directly to Dr. Donlin. This strategic move is designed to boost AVMA membership and enrich member benefits, including fostering stronger collaborations with the Student AVMA (SAVMA), veterinary college deans and faculty, and house officers.

Dr. Zenor transitions to AVMA from Idexx, where she served as Director of Medical Affairs (2020-21) and later as Director of Global Medical Affairs and Outreach since 2021.

A Purdue University alumna, Dr. Zenor earned her master’s degree in animal science in 1997 and her veterinary degree in 2001. At Purdue’s College of Veterinary Medicine, she presided over its student chapter of the AVMA.

Her post-graduate career includes seven years in small animal practice in Indiana, encompassing emergency clinic work and owning a relief practice. In 2008, she became a Practice Development Veterinarian for Hill’s Pet Nutrition, advancing to Senior Manager of U.S. Veterinary Affairs in 2014. Dr. Zenor joined Purdue University in 2017 as Director of its Veterinary Nursing Program and Clinical Associate Professor at the veterinary college for three years.

Currently, Dr. Zenor serves as President of the American Association of Industry Veterinarians and holds positions on the advisory board of the Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition and as a mentor for Women in Leadership and Animal Health.

“At AVMA, my goal is to cultivate a stronger sense of community among our members,” Dr. Zenor expressed. “By harnessing our collective expertise and resources, we can foster a more connected and supportive environment for veterinarians at all career stages and specialties.”
