In October 2018, in Larnaca, the FECAVA Council decided to further mobilize available resources and activities to fully accomplish its mission and objectives.
Since FECAVA serves as a platform of national associations working together to promote the professional development of veterinarians and their representation in Europe, as well as animal welfare and human-animal bond, the FECAVA Council made a decision to focus its work and communication on helping the following:
- its members – the national associations
- companion animal clinicians
- responsible pet owners
- the relevant European and global organizations that are empowered to decide on the key issues for companion animal clinicians and animal welfare.
The structure and content of the whole FECAVA communication, including this first newsletter in 2019, should reflect this new strategy.
This new, focused approach should raise the relevancy of our work and communication to the main FECAVA stakeholders and increase the interest of the veterinary industry for our work that should, in turn help FECAVA to live and grow sustainably.
