Leadership is vitally important for any profession. Having a NAVTA Student Chapter (SCNAVTA) at your school will enable your students to experience the responsibilities that go along with being a member of a profession along with a professional organization. These responsibilities include planning activities that promote veterinary technology, giving back to the community through volunteer efforts, holding an elected office, following a constitution and setting a budget. Involvement in these activities while in school fosters the development of leaders within the profession.
