Local, State and National Service

Dr. Charles Lemme ('75)
You name the veterinary organization and Charles Lemme probably has a connection. He has served in numerous leadership positions in local and state organizations, including the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association. He was president of the Midwest Small Animal Association and is currently a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Board of Directors. “These activities were a great distraction for me,” Lemme said. “Working with these groups was a great way for me to get away from the day-to-day operations in my clinic. But more importantly, they were great learning opportunities. I learned about things I would never had been exposed to if I had just concentrated on my practice.”
