Hello everyone! We have some really exciting opportunities in store for you... read on to find out more!
Active Member Requirements In case you are new to Pre-Vet Club or just need a refresher, here is an overview of the semester requirements to be considered an active member:
1) Pay dues ($10)
2) Attend 4 of 7 meetings
3) Participate in one member activity
4) Participate in Dawg Jog and one additional fundraiser
5) Participate in one group or individual community service opportunity
Keep in mind that these are minimal requirements - the more you put into the club, the more you will get out of it! In addition, at the end of the semester the members who have earned the most points will get to participate in a wet lab with one of the veterinarians at the vet school. The top freshmen will get to go on a tour of the NEW vet school!
Officer Elections will be held at our final meeting of the semester on April 13. You must attend this meeting if you wish to run for an officer position and/or vote. Remember that you must have met the active member requirements this semester in order to run. In addition, you will not be eligible if you have had points deducted for missed events.
Point Tally You can keep track of the points you have earned here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_CddMTXF7PBz14kQDrnCsC7IdoZDDzgwGAIcORrP6ec/edit#gid=0. Points are earned by attending meetings and participating in our other activities.
AAHS Item of the Month is dog supplies. Bring in rope toys, beds, collars, treats, crates you name it at the next meeting for community service points!
Canning On Feb. 17 from 10 p.m. - 1 a.m., we will be canning downtown for Mardi Gras. Please bring your dogs if they are friendly and comfortable in crowds! You will receive fundraising points for participating.

You are welcome to sign up for more than one shift. Meet at the Starbucks downtown (right across from the Arch) at the beginning and end of your shift(s).
Study Groups If you need a group of people to study for your classes with, you can form a study group here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiiD3F8W-2iodGFIbU5yNWRxbWpVcEU2VWFzY3RYZkE&usp=drive_web Just find your class(es) and leave your name, phone number, and email address so that other members of the club can get in touch with you! The officers will not be facilitating these groups - the Google doc is just a means of communication for you. We hope this helps!

Activity Attendance Lately there have been some discrepancies between the number of people who sign up for events and the number of people who actually attend. The officers coordinating the events use the sign-up sheets to estimate how many people to expect, and this is the number we give to coordinators, save seats for, etc. When our club fails to follow through, it makes people angry and reflects poorly on our club. Please do not sign up for any events in which you will not actually participate. If something comes up and you are no longer able to attend, you MUST let the officer in charge know 24 hours in advance. Otherwise, the points you would have earned for attending the event will be deducted from your point total instead. We hate to do this, but we want Pre-Vet Club to have a positive image. Thank you for your cooperation.
