Changes to the BVNA’s voting procedures will allow student members of the association to nominate and vote for full VN members standing for election onto BVNA council.
British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) president Louisa Baker has announced a change to voting rights for student veterinary nurses.
Responding to an initial enquiry from a student member of the association, BVNA council undertook extensive research into voting rights across the veterinary associations and, as a result, has made the decision to change its voting procedures.
The council has decided that student BVNA members will now be able to vote at the BVNA annual general meeting (AGM), as well as nominate and vote for those full VN members standing for election onto BVNA council.
The BVNA constitution will be amended accordingly and the changes formally included once ratified during the association’s AGM, which will take place at BVNA Congress in Telford, which runs from October 11-13, 2013.
- The AGM will take place on October 13 at 10am.
