New president for BVZS

Peter Kettlewell is the new president of the British Veterinary Zoological Society (BVZS), following the association’s annual conference in Manchester last weekend.

Kettlewell, co-director of Chipping Norton Veterinary Hospital, replaces Fieke Molenaar of the Zoological Society of London, who has now become senior vice president, while Elizabeth Mullineaux is the new BVZS junior vice president. The BVZS presidential term is now one year in length – a change from in previous presidencies, when it was a two-year term.

Mullineaux has also announced that she will be stepping down from chairing the BVA policy committee, but will remain on the committee as an ordinary committee member until the end of her term of office in summer 2020.
