The Symposium Committee is charged with the responsibility to keep the Student AVMA Educational Symposium rules and guidelines current and to aid in the transfer of information among hosting schools. The Symposium is a major event designed to expose students to areas of veterinary medicine that are not usually covered in their regular curricula and promote friendships among future colleagues. The Symposium is held at a different veterinary school each spring. Schools interested in hosting the Symposium make bid presentations at the spring House of Delegate's meeting two years prior to the year they plan to host the Symposium. The winner is voted on by the House of Delegates.
