Erin Spencer, MEd, CVT, VTS (ECC), President of NATA, addressing the WSAVA General Assembly
WSAVA President Shane Ryan says: “The fact that so many new associations are keen to join us or upgrade confirms the value that membership of our global veterinary community offers.  The more members we represent the more powerfully we can advocate on behalf of our patients and the more we can raise standards of veterinary care around the world.
“We welcome all of our new members and look forward to working with them.”
We will introduce all of our new members in this Bulletin over the next few months so stay tuned.
