SCAVMA, the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, is a non-profit, student-run group modeled after its parent organization, the American Veterinary Medical Association. At NC State University, SCAVMA is the umbrella organization for 22 other professional group student chapters and student clubs. SCAMVA organizes fundraisers and social events, helps support educational opportunities at the school, and represents the student body to the college administration and the AVMA. SCAVMA also provides funding for both group and individual educational opportunities, such as travel to veterinary conferences, externships, wetlabs, and guest speakers.
The SCAVMA Executive Board is charged with the oversight of fundraising and the proper allocation of funds, advocating on the students' behalf to college administration, and planning of sponsored social events, among other responsibilities.
