The BVNA Council is made up of a team of registered and student veterinary nurses from around the UK who work tirelessly fitting in BVNA business around family and work life on a voluntary basis. The Council meets every six to eight weeks in the BVNA Office in Harlow.

All council members are elected student and registered veterinary nurses, with a common desire to represent the veterinary nursing profession and complete belief in what veterinary nursing can achieve.

The councillors undertake individual roles, chosen by themselves and building on their own personal strengths and experience.

Councillors 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.
