Could you be the next BVA Junior Vice President?
Nominations are open to all BVA member veterinary surgeons.

 
The British Veterinary Association (BVA) are accepting nominations for their next Junior Vice President (JVP).

BVA are looking for a veterinary surgeon who can represent “the voice of the veterinary profession” and who is a “strong and talented” member of the industry.

Working closely with the BVA chief executive and policy and media team, the role of JVP will involve representing BVA as well as using their own expertise to provide veterinary and political guidance.

Current BVA Junior Vice President, Daniella Dos Santos, while commenting on her post said: “I can honestly say it is the best decision I have made, and it has so far been the highlight of my career”.

 BVA members who are interested in applying for, or nominating a fellow BVA member with their consent to become part of the officer team, can find out more here.

Vets in developing nations given free access to BSAVA’s online library

BSAVA has teamed up with the WSAVA, the WSAVA Foundation and FECAVA to offer vets in developing nations free access to its online library.

The Association’s ‘Foundation Collection’ is comprised of more than 70 hours of articles, lectures and book chapters covering topics such as basic handling skills, working on a budget and emergency triage. Some of the countries set to benefit include Albania, Georgia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and Tanzania.

Nicolette Hayward, of BSAVA International Affairs Committee said: “Our mission is to promote excellence in small animal practice through education and science, so we are delighted to work with WSAVA, the WSAVA Foundation and FECAVA to share these high-quality resources to the veterinary profession in low and middle-income countries.”
