Every issue of Companion features an insight into volunteering from a regional or standing committee member. Paul Cooper of our South East committee explains the benefits of volunteering...
"Most members start, as I did, by joining their local regional committee, to help organize regional day and evening meetings. Such volunteers also have a voice on the BSAVA Council, both via the Committee and the Regional Representative.
This is a great way to meet other like minded, forward thinking colleagues, and learn from them. The opportunities to meet and talk ‘one-on-one’ with internationally renowned specialists are invaluable, and would be very difficult from practice otherwise".
