Call for Nominations for Executive Board Member
The WSAVA EB is composed of volunteer veterinarians, and is responsible for the oversight and strategy of the Association. The EB works closely with the Secretariat who is responsible for implementation of this strategy. The EB answers to the WSAVA Assembly, the Assembly being the ultimate decision making body of the WSAVA. The EB currently comprises of the President, Vice President, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer, Congress Liaison Officer and one Board Member responsible for interests in Latin America. The roles of Honorary Secretary and Congress Liaison Officer are being phased out and the board will include more general members, intending to increase regional representation.
The current opening on the EB is for a second ‘Board Member’. This position holds a 2-year term of office, starting after the WSAVA World Congress 2019 in Toronto, Canada. As the regions Africa, the Middle East and Europe (specifically Eastern Europe) are currently underrepresented on the WSAVA EB, members from those regions are strongly encouraged to submit a nomination.
