The BVNA Council has approved its new officer team for 2021/22.

Following a BVNA Council meeting on 10 July, the Council voted to approve the officer positions.

Alex Taylor RVN will take over Jo Oakden's role as BVNA president, and Jo Oakden RVN will then take over the role of senior vice president.

Charlotte Pace RVN will step into the role of junior vice president, while Lyndsay Hughes RVN and Craig Tessyman RVN will step into the roles of honorary secretary and honorary treasurer respectively.

Commenting on the new officer team, current BVNA president Jo Oakden said: “A BVNA Officer role is a busy role and requires extra time commitment to BVNA Council, it is where decisions with a shorter turn-around are made. I am hugely grateful to those officers who gave their time for this year, supporting me as president.

“I look forward to welcoming Charlotte, Lyndsay and Craig into their new roles, and working with them as I enter my Senior Vice President year.

“It is not long now until I hand over the BVNA Presidential reins to Alex Taylor, who will be a fantastic president, and has achieved a huge project in her JVP year with the chronic illness campaign. I look forward to supporting her in the presidential role in the upcoming year.”

The new officer team will be formally confirmed in the AGM at the 2021 BVNA Congress, which will run from 2 – 4 October at the Telford International Centre. 

Tickets for the Congress are available here
