British Veterinary Nursing Association Council Nominations

Calling all British Veterinary Nursing (BVNA) members. Have your say on who’s representing your Association!

This year the BVNA are looking for student members too! Yes, this year all full members AND student members can stand for election onto BVNA Council.

There are 2 student member seats on BVNA Council (these will be in addition to the 12 full member council seats).

Nomination Guidelines For A Student Seat:

The nominee must fulfil the following criteria for eligibility to hold a student seat and become a Council member:

  • Be enrolled with the RCVS and undertaking a FE or HE veterinary nursing course
  • Have no less than six months left in education at the time of being ratified onto Council (ratification will take place on 11 October 2015)
  • In the case of the student being in HE, have a signature of support from their college tutor
  • In the case of FE vocational students have a signature of support from their clinical coach
  • Be a director of the Association once ratified onto Council
  • Important attributes for candidates are a strong commitment to promoting the ideals of the BVNA as well as the veterinary nursing profession in general and a willingness to devote time and effort to representing their fellow members.

If necessary a member of BVNA Council will second your nomination. In the event of a second nomination being received for the same nominee, this will be accepted as also having seconded the initial nomination.

Nominees will be contacted to confirm their willingness to stand for election and will be asked to submit a brief manifesto and a passport sized photo. The nominees, their manifestos and photos will be published within the VNJ and the results will be announced and ratified at the Annual General Meeting on Sunday 11 October 2015 at Telford International Centre, Telford, Shropshire.
