AVA's Centenary marks a milestone
The voice of Australia’s veterinary profession, the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA), celebrates its centenary in 2021.
The AVA provides essential leadership on animal welfare issues, contributes to government policy development, lobbies for improvements in legislation, and develops quality assurance programs that relate to standards of care for patients in veterinary hospitals.
“From small beginnings, something strong has grown - we can be proud of what the AVA has achieved over the last 100 years, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the achievements of veterinarians and the profession. The AVA is committed to empowering the veterinary profession to thrive by providing a strong and united voice, underpinned by a focus on support, education and community”, said Dr Warwick Vale, AVA President.
The AVA is celebrating this milestone with a Centenary program which brings together a collective brand that acknowledges their history and longevity. A range of activities are planned for the AVA’s Centenary year to highlight the significant contributions of veterinarians to Australia, along with exploring what to expect in the field of veterinary science in the years ahead.
