Strengthening the voice of UK Government Vets in Europe

We are pleased to announce that AGV Council member Jane Clark was elected to serve as President of the European Association of State Veterinary Officers (EASVO) in November 2017.


EASVO represents the interests of State Veterinary Officers at a European level and is a section of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE).


The Presidency gives Jane the opportunity to build relationships with members of the FVE and the other 3 FVE sections - UEVH (Veterinary Hygienists), UEVP (Veterinary Practitioners) and EVERI (Vets in Education, Research and Industry) - during the EU Exit negotiations.


The FVE/BVA/RCVS have recently issued a joint press release calling on Brexit negotiators to secure animal welfare, surveillance and medicines.

EASVO Board 2017-19

L-R: Ole-Herman Tronerud - Secretary General; Pavel Bravek - Vice President; Jane Clark - President; Ray Finn - Senior Vice President;
