EAZWV June 2016 News!


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

A month from now will see us in Atlanta for the first joint AAZV/IZW/EAZWV conference. Many volunteers from AAZV, IZW and EAZWV have worked hard to put an exciting program together. A big thank you to all of you!

Sadly, not all of you will be coming and so this quarter we have been working extra hard to develop new ways for us all to share information with each other online. Here you can see the new format of the EAZWV newsletter. It contains many links to our new website and also announces the launch of our new Facebook page. Please go visit these and share comments, ideas and information.

There is also a link to our new online voting platform that will allow you to contribute to our General Assembly even if you can’t attend in person. It is essential that we are an active membership. Only by pulling together will we be recognized as a strong and important conservation organization that can effectively represent zoo and wildlife vets and can achieve our shared goal of improving the health, welfare and conservation of wildlife.

I look forward to hearing from you whether in person in Atlanta or on Facebook and the new discussion forums.

Take care,

Hanspeter W. Steinmetz, Vice-President EAZWV

P.S. To get the most out of this Newsletter do remember to LOGIN to the EAZWV website: Once you have done this, the links in the text will take you straight to the documents, articles and features we have been working on!
