Council of the BVNA
The BVNA council is entirely made up of elected veterinary nurses, they can come from all parts of the country and all have different experiences of veterinary nursing, the one thing they all have in common is a desire to represent the veterinary nursing profession.
This is achieved by hard work, determination, and complete belief in what veterinary nursing can achieve.
The councilors each have a independent role to play, this is chosen by each individual councilor and depends on what experience they have.
Councilors are elected for a three year period, the terms of office are staggered so there will always be new council members coming onto council every year.
