Dear South Carolina veterinary professionals,

On behalf of the South Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians (SCAVT), I would like to share some exciting news but first, we would like to recognize that 2020 was an especially challenging year for our profession.  Whether you practice in a clinical setting, management, research, education, industry, or any other part of veterinary medicine, the COVID-19 pandemic affected you in some way.  Thankfully, the SCAVT can provide networking and collaboration opportunities while we navigate times such as these.  Whether this networking is to share ideas, or to provide a platform for like-minded colleagues to find emotional support, we understand how powerful these relationships and opportunities can be.  

Because of this understanding, the SCAVT executive board is gifting you with the opportunity to be a part of your state association for free.  The SCAVT strives to bind professionals together and this gift of one free year of membership will help us accomplish this goal.  For 2020 members, this will mean that your membership will automatically be renewed through December 31, 2021 and if you already paid your 2021 membership dues, membership will be automatically renewed through the end of 2022!

If you are not a current member of the SCAVT, please visit our website at and complete an online membership form to begin taking advantage of this free year of membership.  This offer is available to all licensed veterinary professionals (LVT’s and DVM’s), as well as veterinary technician students enrolled in an AVMA accredited Veterinary Technology Program.  

Please share this exciting information with your colleagues, visit our updated website which now makes membership renewals quick, easy and gives instant confirmation, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.  


The SCAVT is dedicated to increasing public awareness of the vital role licensed technicians play in the veterinary healthcare team and to provide professional unity within South Carolina.  Please reach out to any executive board member listed on our website if you have any questions or would like to find out more about the SCAVT.  

Kind regards,

Melissa P. Entrekin, LVT, VTS (ECC)

SCAVT, President
