For Equine Vets Everywhere

Join BEVA Council

BEVA is run by equine vets, for equine vets. 

Nominations for BEVA council are now closed. All eligible members will be invited to vote between Wednesday 5 August and Wednesday 2 September 2020.

Why volunteer

Volunteering on BEVA Council gives you the opportunity to get involved in the work BEVA does, from working with other associations and organisations through to working on projects that tackle equine veterinary welfare topics and improve the working lives of equine vets. 

It gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people and help shape the future of the equine veterinary profession. 


BEVA Council members sit on one or more of our committees and each committee work on a number of projects and activities that tackle a wide range of topical veterinary and welfare subjects. This ranges from working with Government and being part of working groups with other charities, associations and organisations through to running BEVA-led campaigns to improve the working lives of equine vets and the welfare of the horse.

All council members come together for two annual meetings and committees meet up to four times a year.

Council elections take place once a year between May and July. All Ordinary and Concessionary members are invited to submit a nomination to join council. Nominations are online and overseen by Civica, an independent  provider of election and voting services. Members submitting a nomination must be proposed and seconded by two other BEVA members,

Online voting is open to ordinary and concessionary BEVA members in August and closes early September each year. New council members are confirmed and approved at the  AGM in September, which this year will take place virtually.
