The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has announced the appointment of Amanda Boag as Treasurer, in part of a shakeup that sees five major changes to the organisation’s senior management.
At RCVS’ Annual General Meeting and Awards Day on 11th July, Stuart Reid will be confirmed as President, Neil Smith as Senior Vice President, Chris Tufnell as Chairman of the Education Committee and David Catlow as Chairman of the Standards Committee. Bradley Viner, the current Treasurer, is to become Junior Vice President, clearing the way for Boag, who joins the organisation from Vets Now where she is Clinical Director. In 2012, Boag was also elected President of the European Society of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, a position she will hold until 2016.
Commenting on her new role, Boag said: “I am very honoured to have been appointed Treasurer and am looking forward to working closely with other Council members and the Belgravia House team. I would particularly like to thank my predecessor Bradley Viner for the excellent work he has done over the past four years.”
“This has been a period of great change for the College and during his tenure he has done a hue amount of work to support the improvements in governance, including standardising the way that the College’s accounts are reported. Our finances are currently in a healthy state despite o increase in the annual fee for several years.”
“I am now looking forward to building on his legacy and ensuring the finances remain healthy, allowing us to move forward with our Strategic Plan”.
