NIVA Membership Information
Full membership £85
Senior member £25
Young member <8 years qualified £25
NIVA holds at least 4 meetings per year and a number of social events including the senior members’ lunch.
NIVA is the original territorial division of the British Veterinary Association (BVA) and works closely with the BVA Northern Ireland Branch to ensure the BVA represents the views of the profession here in the north when lobbying legislators and policy makers in London and Brussels.
Locally, NIVA champions veterinary causes with our own Assembly and endeavours to ensure that agri-food policy and other animal health and welfare policy issues are in line with veterinary science.
Young Vet Network NI (YVN NI) is an integral and thriving part of NIVA. As well as connecting and supporting recently graduated vets via Facebook, they provide a number of highly popular CPD events each year. You can link up with them HERE.
