Good evening everyone! Dawg Jog is just over a month away, so read on to find out how you can help with our biggest fundraiser of the year. It's going to take the whole club to pull off this huge event!
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 10 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 10 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.
