The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is calling for members to nominate veterinary surgeons and non-veterinary surgeons who merit the award of Honorary Associateship or Honorary Fellowship.

 

Honorary Associateships are awarded annually to people, not necessarily veterinary surgeons, by reason of their special eminence in, or special service to, the veterinary profession. Council has agreed that these should only be people ineligible for election as Honorary Fellows.

 

Honorary Fellowships can be awarded to up to three veterinary surgeons in any one year for their service to, or special eminence in, the cause of veterinary science.

 

Nominees for Honorary Fellowships must be members of the RCVS and have been a member, or held a registrable qualification, for at least 20 years.

 

All nominations need to include the particular reasons why the honour/award should be conferred, along with supporting statements from two referees, at least one of whom must not be a working colleague of the person nominated.

 

Nominations must be received by the President, Dr Jerry Davies, by Friday, 2 September 2011.

 

Members may download the nomination form ('Related documents' box - right), or request it from the RCVS Executive Office (0207 202 0761 or executiveoffice@rcvs.org.uk).
