VMAA 2024 Membership Form

Student Outreach Bureau Survey

The Veterinary Medical Alumni Association (VMAA) at Iowa State University is a long-established membership association that operates independently to enhance alumni, student and college interests.

Graduates of the College of Veterinary Medicine are asked to support the VMAA with annual dues of $50. Members elect a board of directors to plan and oversee the policies, activities and fiduciary responsibilities of the association. It is managed by volunteers with the intermittent use of clerical and student help.

A variety of initiatives are underwritten entirely or with major support from the VMAA. Its budget allocations include:

  • Support and organization of alumni activities during ISU's Homecoming (members can purchase discounted football tickets)
  • Funding for ISU Alumni Receptions held annually at three major professional meetings
  • Scholarship support for students
  • Support for special projects such as the Gentle Doctor magazine and the White Coat Ceremony 

VMAA Mission

  • Promote fellowship among alumni of the College of Veterinary Medicine
  • Further the interests of the College of Veterinary Medicine
  • Advance and strengthen interaction between alumni and veterinary students
