To support and encourage RVTs in San Francisco, the SFVMA has established a scholarship program for students enrolled in an accredited RVT program. We will award $1000 to 2 candidates who are currently or have previously worked in the practice of an SFVMA member, and have a stated desire to return to SF after graduation. Submissions should include a personal statement from the student, a letter of recommendation from the veterinarian, and proof of enrollment at an accredited RVT program.
The deadline for applications is May 1 annually. Questions should be sent to Dr. Shari O'Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The objectives of the Association shall be to advance the science and art of veterinary medicine in all its branches, including its relationship to public health, the biological sciences and agriculture. The Association shall provide a forum for the discussion of issues of importance to the veterinary profession, and for the development of official position statements. The Association shall be the authorized voice for the profession in San Francisco in presenting its views to government, academia, agriculture, pet owners, the media and other concerned public.

The SFVMA Board will consider charitable grants to organizations that support the care and welfare of animals in our community and promote the veterinary profession.
Please contact Cyndi Stiglich for details on requests for donations.
ANIMAL CONTROL AND WELFARE COMMISSION
The Animal Control and Welfare Commission is made up of representatives from stakeholder organizations with an interest in animal issues (including a practicing veterinarian) as well as members of the public. The Commission acts as an advisory body to the Board of Supervisors with regard to animals in private, public, and commercial care, and holds hearings and submits recommendations regarding animal control and welfare in San Francisco. Meetings are held at City Hall, Room 408 on the third Thursday of the month (no meeting in December) at 5:30pm and are open to the public. If you have any issues that you feel should be considered in future meetings, please contact Shari O’Neill.
SPONSORSHIPS FOR FUTURE MEETINGS
In order to continue to contract with the Cliff House as our meeting venue, support our charitable and scholarship funds, and generally maintain the organization (with keeping dues payments reasonable), the Board will continue to seek sponsorships that help to cover the costs of our programs. While we hope to avoid overt endorsement of specific products/services, etc. during the continuing education presentations, we feel it is reasonable to allow the sponsor to distribute marketing materials and to make a brief presentation with regard to promoting their interests in recognition of their generous support.
While we would encourage members-
If you are interested in sponsoring a future meeting, please contact Carrie Jurney.
