BSAVA General Meeting Update

25 November 2020

The BSAVA General Meeting took place on 19 November with two items on the agenda: members approved changes to the Articles of Association to enable electronic or hybrid AGMs to be held in the future; updates to the Rule Book were also shared.

The BSAVA Board and Council have agreed changes to the BSAVA Rules of the Association, which outlines the rules and procedures governing the Association, granting RVN’s full voting and volunteering rights. This means RVN members may now fully participate in the governance of BSAVA, vote at the AGM and be eligible for all volunteer positions within the Association.

The amendments were the result of a consultation carried out with BSAVA volunteers and members, recommendations subsequently submitted for approval to Board and Council. BSAVA are pleased that these amendments mean that nurse members are now eligible to fully participate in BSAVA.
