Professions invited to virtually attend the RCVS 2021 Annual General Meeting

The proceedings will begin at 10am of 9 July with the formal adoption by RCVS Council of the Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2020

Veterinary surgeons and
veterinary nurses are invited to attend this year’s Royal College Day, the
Annual General Meeting of the RCVS,
which takes place 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.

The proceedings
will begin at 10am with the formal adoption by RCVS Council of the Annual Report and Financial Statements
for 2020, which will be published prior to the event.

After this, answers will be
given to any written questions that have been submitted to the RCVS about the Annual Report by veterinary
surgeons and veterinary nurses. Those with any questions about the publication
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 the event can register by filling
in the form online.

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 and 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.
