RCVS Day - the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Annual General Meeting and Presentation of Awards - will be held on Friday 5 July 2013 at the Royal College of Physicians, London.

 

All members and listed/registered veterinary nurses are warmly invited to attend the day, which will start at 10am with Annual General Meeting (AGM) business. RCVS Day is a chance to recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working within the veterinary profession. Honorary Awards will be bestowed, as well as presentations of Fellowships and Diplomas to veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses.

 

The day will also mark the last official engagement for Jacqui Molyneux as RCVS President. She will chair the AGM and welcome new members to Council and the Veterinary Nurses Council before handing over the reins to Col Neil Smith, who will formally take up his office as President for 2013-2014.

 

Dr Andy Stringer MRCVS, Director of Programmes at the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad will be this year's guest speaker, and will discuss the work he has carried out for the charity across the globe in his talk 'Improving the health and welfare of working animals worldwide'.
