BVNA announces council election results
“I would like to thank all those who put themselves forward for election, plus members who voted this year” – Lyndsay Hughes.
Three RVNs join BVNA Council after membership votes.

The British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) has announced the results of its recent election to fill three RVN seats on its Board of Council.

Simone Bennett, Hamish Morrin, and Helen Stewart have been elected to the council after members voted between 1-30 June. The unsuccessful candidates were Jessica Bold, Chloe Carpenter, Amber Smith, and Leanne Walsh.

The BVNA Council comprises 12 RVNs and three student veterinary nurses. Each member serves a three-year term, with the terms staggered so that each year there are some seats up for election. The council decides on the BVNA’s strategic direction and represents it at veterinary events.

The three successful candidates will be presented to the BVNA annual general meeting for ratification on 13 October 2024. The event will also see the ratification of the incoming BVNA officer team for the 2024/25 term.

Lyndsay Hughes will serve as president, Sarah Holliday as junior vice-president, Steph Worsley as honorary secretary, and Nikki McLeod as honorary treasurer.

Ms Hughes said: “I would like to thank all those who put themselves forward for election, plus members who voted this year. It is an exciting time to be part of representing the veterinary nursing profession, and we look forward to ratifying the successful candidates onto BVNA Council at the AGM in October.

“We are also pleased to announce the incoming officer team; a group of our council members who have committed even more of their time to step into a more senior role within BVNA Council.

“It is a privilege to work alongside the passionate and dedicated veterinary nurses who make up our entire council team, and who volunteer their time to represent and champion the veterinary nursing profession.”
