The RCVS is inviting all vet nurses to attend its Annual General Meeting, taking place online, on Friday, 9 July 2021.

The proceedings will begin at 10am with the formal adoption by RCVS Council of the Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2020, which will be published prior to the event.

The College will then answer any written questions that have been submitted about the Annual Report by veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses.

If you have any questions about the Annual Report, you'll need to submit them to RCVS Events Manager Deborah Rowlanes on no later than Friday 2 July 2021.

RCVS President Mandisa Greene will then formally welcome the newly-elected RCVS Council members – Louise Allum, Danny Chambers, Tshidi Gardiner and Colin Whiting – onto Council for their four-year terms, and newly-elected VN Council members Susan Howarth and Donna Lewis for their three-year terms, as well as saying farewell to retiring members of both Councils.

After a short break, the AGM will reconvene at 11am to approve Kate Richards (pictured right) as President for 2021-22, Melissa Donald as Junior Vice-President, Mandisa as Senior Vice-President, and Niall Connell as Treasurer.

There will then be addresses from Matthew Rendle as Chair of Veterinary Nurses Council, and from Mandisa as the outgoing RCVS President for 2020-21, followed by the formal investiture of the new RCVS Officer Team.

There will then be closing remarks from Kate Richards as the newly invested RCVS President.
