The underlying theme in this report is one of connectedness and functional linkage both within the
CVM and by the CVM to its clients, constituents and the rest of the AHC. The CVM must be recognized
in its role as a major player in endeavors affecting the entire AHC including genomics, food safety and
zoonoses. This exercise was a combination of defining the CVM’s current status (Where is the CVM
now?), visioning for the CVM’s future (Where do we want to be in the next 3 - 5 years?), and assessing the
political/fiscal realities for the CVM (What will it take to get where we want to be?). This Executive
Summary provides an overview using this approach, where applicable, to each of the Defining Questions.
