Honorary Life Award

CABV/ACVB's Bylaws indicate that an Honorary Life Membership may be awarded to a veterinarian who has been judged to have made an exceptional contribution to the affairs of the Association and/or to the practice of bovine veterinary medicine in Canada.

Members may nominate a potential recipient by forwarding a letter to the CABV/ACVB Nominating Committee outlining the nominee's achievements and explaining why the individual is worthy of an Honorary Life Membership.  Nominations will be presented to the CABV/ACVB Board of Directors for approval.

Consider nominating a deserving individual.  Awards will be presented at the CABV/ACVB AGM, or the AGM of the recipient’s regional bovine veterinary association.
