Voting now open for BVNA Council elections
Voting is now open to BVNA members to choose who they would like to represent them on Council.
All BVNA members are encouraged to vote in the BVNA Council elections, which this year contains a record number of RVN candidates. Members are invited to vote for up to two candidates and can do so online via the Members Area.
BVNA Council formulates the policies, direction and events of the largest VN representative body in the UK. Representatives stand for a period of three years and no previous experience in governance or management is required.

• Rachel Davis RVN
• Albert Holgate RVN
• Callum Ladell BSC (Hons) PgProfDev FdSc RVN

• Lacey Pitcher RVN
• Sarah Ramsden RVN
• Louise Scott VNCert (ECC) Ncert(Anaesth) RVN
• Abigail Stanley-Jones RVN
• Alexandra Taylor RVN C&G Cert SAN ISFM Cert&DipFN.
“The number of candidates in the election speaks volumes. This is the highest number of candidates we have seen and is great for the profession and the BVNA,” said BVNA president Wendy Nevins. “I look forward to seeing all the candidates’ campaigns during voting period.
“I urge all of our members to use their vote and to encourage their fellow members to vote – this is their opportunity to decide who sits on Council to represent you.”
Voting will remain open until midnight on 18 July and all candidates' profiles and manifestos can be found on the BVNA website.
