Final reminder for would-be RCVS and VN Council election candidates

17 January 2013

Would-be candidates in the RCVS Council and VN Council elections are reminded that the nominations deadline is 5pm on 31 January 2013.

Veterinary surgeons need two nominations from veterinary surgeons, and veterinary nurses two nominations from veterinary nurses, to stand in the respective elections.

Veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses not presently on either Council can nominate one candidate each.

Nomination forms, full instructions and guidance notes are available from the RCVS Council and VN Council sections. 

Six seats are due to be filled on RCVS Council, and two on VN Council. Those elected will take their seats on RCVS Day next July, to serve four-year terms.

Council members will be expected to spend at least six to eight days a year attending Council and Committee meetings, working parties and subcommittees (for which a loss-of-earnings allowance is available).
