A huge thank you to all those involved with this year’s WA Division Conference held earlier in November. I believe we’ve found the sweet spot for conference topics combining progressive medicine that can be implemented across general practice.

The Industry Advisory Group for Veterinary Nursing (WA) was re-established in 2023 under the direction of the National Industry Advisory Group for Veterinary Nursing (NIAG).
The Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference committee expressed gratitude for the AVA’s support of their 2023 Perth conference.
My 3-year term as the President of the AVA’s WA Division will conclude in early November. It has been a busy period for me, but a rewarding experience. It was a huge challenge to juggle the responsibilities of this role alongside my other work and family commitments, but I genuinely hope that I helped to make improvements to the profession over this time.
