The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has appointed a new Treasurer to replace Dr Bradley Viner who will become (junior) Vice-President in July.

Amanda Boag was appointed Treasurer at the RCVS Council meeting on Thursday 5 June and will officially take up her post at RCVS Day – the College’s Annual General Meeting and Awards Day – on Friday 11 July.

Amanda is a Clinical Director at Vets Now and is also currently President of the European Society of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care. She was elected to RCVS Council for a four-year term in 2012.

As Treasurer she will be responsible for maintaining an overview of the College’s affairs, ensuring its financial viability and making sure that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.

Speaking of her new role Amanda says: “I am very honoured to have been appointed Treasurer for the RCVS and am looking forward to working closely with other Council members and the Belgravia House team.

“I would particularly like to thank my predecessor Bradley Viner for the excellent work he has done over the past four years. This has been a period of great change for the College and during his tenure he has done a huge amount of work to support the improvements in governance, including standardising the way that the College’s accounts are reported.

“Our finances are currently in a healthy state despite no increase in the annual renewal fee for several years. I am now looking forward to building on his legacy and ensuring the finances remain healthy, allowing us to move forward with our Strategic Plan.”

At RCVS Day on 11 July, Professor Stuart Reid will also be confirmed as President; current President Neil Smith as (senior) Vice-President; Chris Tufnell as Chairman of the Education Committee; and David Catlow as Chairman of the Standards Committee.
