Vision, Mission & Objectives

The NACAM (Netherlands Association of Companion Animal Medicine) unites the companion animal veterinarians in the Netherlands within the KNMvD (Royal Dutch Veterinary Association). As part of the KNMvD, the NACAM promotes the professional and social development of companion animal veterinarians when it comes to animal welfare, animal health and public health. 

Priorities for the Upcoming Year

The organization of the KNMvD (Royal Dutch Veterinary Association), of which the NACAM is part of, has undergone major changes. A new structure has been implemented, resulting in a simplified construction of the KNMvD with a lighter administrative structure. The NACAM has downsized from 5 to 3 board members, of which the president also sits in the board of the umbrella association. For 2019 the priorities have not been set.
