Meetings Update

Dear members,

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid 19 Outbreak we have decided not to hold a physical meeting in Autumn 2020, instead, we will be holding a virtual meeting webinar style. This will be a one day meeting on Friday 20th November and will include a number of well known speakers from around the world.

Further details will be posted here and in the Summer Newsletter when they become available.

As previously notified the Spring meeting, “Bad to the bone -infection in small animal orthopaedics” planned for this year, will be in Spring 2021. In the same way this year’s planned Autumn meeting “Breed variations in orthopaedic disease”  will now be in 2021 at the previously planned venue- Eastwood Hall, Nottingham.

Thank you, 

The BVOA Committee

Election for the position of Vice Chairman of the British Veterinary Orthopaedic Association 2020

All candidates received broad representation across the membership. The successful candidate was Mark Bush. The committee is delighted to welcome him. 

The committee and membership as a whole are  also very grateful to Andrew Robinson and Michael Hamilton for standing in this election and offering their time to committee work. They clearly have support from the membership for a role on the committee and we hope they will consider subsequent posts as they arise in the future.
