Welcome Back & SAVMA Sign Ups

First, let's welcome your 2013 Executive Board!

President: Jeremy Redmond
President Elect: TBD
Vice President: TBD
Treasurer: Gabe Ordas
Secretary: Stephanie Wardius - that would be me :)
Senior Delegate: Ashley Bredenberg
Junior Delegate: Kirk Kasuya

Hope everyone had a relaxing winter break and you are all back and ready to start the spring term! A big welcome to the incoming class!!!  Hope you are excited to start your life on the rock here at SGU - we can't wait to get you all signed up for SCAVMA.  Our goal is to have each and every one of our veterinary students signed up with dues paid.  That said, with at least 80% participation SGU will have the right to vote in the House of Delegates at the SAVMA Symposium in March.

For those curious, here is more info on the symposium - Click here for info on the symposium

So who wants to join SCAVMA?  All of you right?  CLICK HERE TO JOIN SCAVMA
If you have any problems joining, never fear...your trusty SCAVMA Exec Board will be set up at Orientation to help you sign up (just bring a credit card for the $30 dues - SGU will later reimburse you).

What do you get out of joining SCAVMA? Click here to find out

All SCAVMA members are automatically members in good standing with the Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA,

Access to the SAVMA website where you can find many more loan, externship funding, and scholarship opportunities. 

Reduced subscription rates for the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) and the American Journal of Veterinary Research (AJVR).

Graduating members in good standing (must have been a dues paying member for three years of vet school, one being the senior year) are extended one year free membership with the AVMA and reduced membership dues for the following two years (that's a savings of over $1000 and you will be reimbursed your initial dues fee anyway...what's not to love?)
