Updates and current contributions from LGVMA's student members is welcomed and encouraged!!
The LGVMA board is committed to expanding our student outreach and student member retention. We now have enthusiastic student members on the board and are planning a number of exciting student events.
Prior to this point, the students haven't provided much input in the direction of the organization. We would like feedback from LGBT students (DVM/VMD students, technician students, interns/residents, etc). Please take a few minutes and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rest assured that your privacy WILL be protected.
Student Preceptorships/Externships with LGVMA members can be found in the opportunities section. Also in this section find information on LGVMA's mentoring program.

One of our new goals is to increase outreach to veterinary technicians/assistants -- we know there has to be a lot of you out there.We've contacted some technician schools and state tech organizations to make sure they know about us. At the same time, we want to devote a separate section of the site to technician issues/resources.Any input or suggestions would be welcomed. Please send email to email@example.com.
