Dear CVBC Registrants;
I hope this note finds you and yours healthy and safe during these uncertain times. As we move into the sixth week of radical changes to our lives I hope, like myself, you might also be starting to feel a bit of optimism around the gradual return to normal that is being suggested by our provincial government and colleagues in public health. I am reaching out at this time to connect with you as we continue to navigate this situation together as a CVBC community.
I wanted to keep you informed of recent developments at the College since my last communication. Your Council and staff have been working exceptionally hard during these unprecedented times to continue the essential functions of our College. Council has held weekly or bi-weekly video conferences since the start of the COVID-19 restrictions in order to stay abreast of this rapidly changing situation. Our office staff have gone above and beyond to continue to operate to provide the necessary services and functions that are required by our self-governing professional obligations to protect the public. Our committees continue to function, and their volunteer veterinary and public members and contributing staff are having to adapt their normal processes to accommodate.
In all we continue to provide the structure and function required to maintain the privilege of self-governance.
