1) Have your say

Our members are part of the VDS family so it's important that your voice is heard on the things that matter. Your vote on the re-election of the directors and how we govern your Society will help shape the future of the VDS and make sure that we're doing the right thing for members across the UK and ROI.

As a Society here solely for the value and benefit of our members, we encourage you to have your say at this year's AGM. VDS members are welcome to join us in person on Wednesday 31 July 2024 at 2:15pm. Or, if you're unable to make it, you can still vote by completing and sending us your Form of Proxy. This will enable you to vote on resolutions being put to the AGM, by appointing either the Chair of the meeting, or a fellow veterinary member of the VDS, to attend and vote in your name.

2) Send us your questions

If you have any questions relating to the Notice of AGM or our annual accounts, please email them to agm2024@thevds.co.uk.

3) How to reply

Simply return your completed Form of Proxy to agm2024@thevds.co.uk or post your form to the Company Secretary, at the Knutsford office address at the bottom of this webpage, to arrive no later than 2:15pm on Monday 29 July 2024. Further details are set out on the Form of Proxy.

4) Thank you!

We really appreciate you taking the time to vote at our AGM so for every member who returns a Form of Proxy, we will donate £1 to Vetlife or approximately €1.10 to the IVBF.

Proposed Changes to Articles of Association

The Society has recently reviewed its Articles of Association and is proposing a number of changes at this year's AGM. You'll find details of the proposed changes on the Notice of AGM and the Form of Proxy.

You can have your say and vote on these proposed changes, as well as the re-election of directors, using the Form of Proxy below, or by joining us at the AGM on Wednesday 31 July 2024 at 2:15pm.
