Vets and veterinary nurses invited to attend RCVS Day 2015

16 June 2015

We would like to invite veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses to attend RCVS Day - our Annual General Meeting and Awards Day - next month.

The AGM is followed by the presentation of awards, giving those attending the opportunity to recognise and celebrate vets, VNs and lay people who have contributed towards the profession.

RCVS Day 2015 takes place on Friday 10 July at One Great George Street in Westminster between 10am and 12.45pm and will be followed by a drinks reception and lunch.

As his last official engagement of the year, current RCVS President Professor Stuart Reid will chair the Annual General Meeting and welcome new members to RCVS Council and VN Council, before handing over to Dr Bradley Viner, who will be invested as President for 2015-16.

During the AGM, members will be asked to approve the College’s Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2014 which is available to download from our publications section.

The AGM is followed by the presentation of awards, giving those attending the opportunity to recognise and celebrate veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and laypeople who have contributed towards the profession.

The awards bestowed on the day are the Queen’s Medal, Honorary Associateships, Honorary Fellowships and the VN Golden Jubilee Award as well as Fellowships and Diplomas.

Professor Will Hueston Speeches will be delivered by our CEO Nick Stace, Professor Stuart Reid as outgoing President, and Dr Bradley Viner as incoming President.

The platform will then be handed to the RCVS Day guest speaker Will Hueston (pictured), a Professor at the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine and School of Public Health and expert in the field of public health and food safety. Professor Hueston will be addressing the topic of professional leadership in veterinary medicine, science and policy.

If you wish to attend RCVS Day please book your place by contacting Emma Lockley, our Events Officer, on e.lockley@rcvs.org.uk or 020 7202 0773.

Tickets are free but places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
