New BSAVA President to Lead Veterinary Community

22 April 2015

UK - Incoming BSAVA President Tricia Colville has outlined key elements of her strategic vision, including better regional communications, support for professional development and expanding the volunteer network.

“It’s an honour to be asked to take on this role, but I don’t see it as just my year, it’s also for the team of volunteers around me; a team I’m very privileged to be able to lead,” she said.

“I have got so much out of the BSAVA that has been useful in my own daily life and work and I want to have discussions with people about how the BSAVA can help their development too.”

Tricia has had a number of roles for the BSAVA, including working in Scotland, in membership development and as chair of PetSavers - and she completed an abseil at Congress down the front of the ICC building to raise funds for the charity.

“The different roles you have do influence the slant you take when you go forward and that’s one of the reasons I signed up to the abseil, anything I can do I will,” she said.

“What is also very dear to my heart is the membership and I realise the members and the volunteers are very much a community, I think that’s what is very special about the BSAVA.”
