BVA and RCVS to co-host 2020 FVE General Assembly in London

Friday, September 6, 2019

BVA and RCVS will be co-hosting the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) General Assembly in June 2020.

The FVE General Assembly is a biannual event in which the organisation, an umbrella body for veterinary associations and regulators from 40 European countries, meets to hear reports from its various committees and working groups and make recommendations on veterinary policy.

Former RCVS and BVA President, the late Peter Storie-Hugh MBE, was a founder member of FVE serving from 1975-1979 as its President. Through the RCVS and BVA, the UK has remained a member ever since, and recently instigated the successful VetFutures Europe project based on the UK’s own programme to shape the future of the veterinary profession.

The 2020 event will be taking place from Thursday 4 to Saturday 6 June at Church House in Westminster and will include a reception for delegates to be held at the House of Lords and hosted by Professor the Lord Trees. It is the first time that the UK has hosted an FVE General Assembly since the FVE met in Belfast in 2002.
