RCVS Annual General Meeting goes virtual again

Surgeons and nurses urged to submit questions

Veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses have been invited to attend this year’s Royal College Day, the Annual General Meeting of the RCVS, on Friday, 9 July 2021.

The Annual General Meeting will be held virtually again this year with members of the professions being able to watch the proceedings live online.

Things kick off at 10am with the formal adoption by RCVS Council of the Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2020.

After this, answers will be given to any written questions about the Annual Report by veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses. Those who wish to raise a query should contact RCVS Events Manager Deborah Rowlanes on d.rowlanes@rcvs.org.uk no later than Friday 2 July 2021. Those who wish to attend can register by filling in a registration webform

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.

Following a short break, the AGM will reconvene at 11am to formally approve Kate Richards 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.

As with last year, the RCVS Awards Ceremony, where the recipients of this year’s RCVS Honours & Awards will be formally recognised for their achievements, will take place later in the year. This year the event has been scheduled for the evening of Thursday, 23 September 2021.
