RE: Opposition to Employ Media Request to Change sTLD Charter

Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association is a not-for-profit membership 
organization representing more than 1,000 veterinarians in the state of 

One of the benefits that associations provide for members is a place for people 
within the profession to search for new jobs within their area of expertise. 
These niche internet job boards are a valuable member benefit to individuals 
and companies, as well as a source of non-dues revenue. But currently, the 
for-profit company Employ Media is attempting to monopolize the internet job 
market, which could cost associations like ours millions of dollars in lost 
revenue. No less important, it will grievously harm our community by confusing 
the job seekers and employers who have been our loyal online career center 
users. Our association depends on non-due revenue to sustain our business.

I am writing on behalf of the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) to 
urge you to reject Employ Media's request for authority to permit second level 
registration of strings that do not correspond to an employer's name in the 
.jobs sponsored top level domain. The OVMA -Veterinary Career Network, which 
would be directly and adversely affected, opposes the unilateral expansion of 
the .jobs charter to encompass regional and industry-specific second-level 

Thank you for your consideration.


Jana Black
OVMA Executive Director
