NYSAVT LogoThe purpose of this organization is to provide a social and educational organization so as to allow members to get to know each other; to promote interest with the parent organization; to create and maintain a professional image of the Veterinary Technician and his/her relationship to the Veterinarian; to enlarge the technicians knowledge of necessary skills through continuing education; to promote integrity, courtesy and honesty; to foster high ethical standards within our profession; to promote interest of Veterinary Technicians through state and federal legislatures. As a student of the Veterinary Technology program you are eligible to enroll and participate in our club. Student membership is inexpensive costing $25 per school year. This fee enrolls you with our student chapter as well as with our parent chapter in Albany, NY.

  • As a club we provide many continuing education opportunities along with community service and open house hours and experience. As a student at Delhi you are required to complete a total of 8 hours of continuing education, 4 hours of community service and 4hours of open house volunteer hours within your two years here.

  • By joining our club you will have first-hand knowledge of when all of these opportunities are available as well as get to know a great group of students that you will spend the majority of your time with here at Delhi.

  • Our club meets once a week for a quick meeting lasting approx. 15-20 minutes. We understand your schedules are busy with classes and studying so we try to keep them brief.

  • Some of the activities we do on a regular basis are; holding a Dog Wash, 2-3 times per semester approximately 50 students volunteer for this event that is held on a weekend from 9a-3p. The event is a huge success that raises money for our club for us to be able to donate to our local shelter as well as help us participate in many continuing education seminars. We also take approximately 25-30 students every spring to the NYS Association of Veterinary Technicians Spring Seminar which is often located in a different city of NY each year. Students pay a low fee to attend this all weekend event and the rest is subsidized by the club with the funds we've raised throughout the year.

  • You will be able to register at the beginning of school year by attending our meetings. We will post signs letting you know when the meetings will be and when sign-ups are available.
