The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA), an umbrella organization representing 180,000 veterinarians globally through 92 member associations, has unveiled a new corporate identity and launched a new website at www.wsava.org. Both have been designed to help provide an enhanced sense of the ‘global community of veterinarians’ the WSAVA represents by providing a strong external image and enabling members to share information easily and quickly with colleagues around the world.
|They have been launched just ahead of WSAVA FASAVA World Congress which takes place in Auckland from 6-9 March 2013. The Scientific Program has been developed by Dr Richard Jerram, an orthopaedic surgeon in New Zealand and Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in Small Animal Surgery.
Commenting on the WSAVA’s ‘new look’, Dr Siraya Chunekamrai, Head of WSAVA Communications and a Bangkok-based veterinarian, comments: “WSAVA communications are challenging as we are spread around the world; come from diverse cultures and have differing levels of access to technology.
With the development of our new website and corporate identity, we’re aiming to help generate a sense of ownership, support and mutual respect, while also making it easy for us to share knowledge and experience.
Now, more than ever, the world needs a community of veterinarians who are willing to work together to create a global voice which can help change the world for the better. That’s what the WSAVA aims to do and our new communications initiatives will help us achieve our goals.”
