The ACT Training/Credentialing Committee, which reviews credentials of prospective candidates, relies to a great extent on letters of reference when determining a petitioner’s suitability for candidacy in the ACT.

• A careful description of the petitioner’s devotion to Theriogenology

o Percentage of time

o Roles

o Experience

o Settings (i.e., practice, academic, industry, other)

• The petitioner’s moral character and professional behavior

o Our Constitution specifically states “certification is open to veterinarians who have demonstrated unquestionable moral character and impeccable professional behavior.”

Your letter should be addressed to the Training/Credentialing Committee, labeled with the appropriate letter, placed in an envelope and sealed. You should sign the envelope over the sealed flap and give it to the petitioner for inclusion in the credentials packet, which will be forwarded to the committee.

Thank you for your assistance.
