Over the coming year, the Board intends to undertake more work in the governance succession planning. As diversity across all levels of the business, including governance, is important in terms of ensuring the business remained relevant to the ever-changing makeup and needs of our members.

In the 2020-21 season, our focus remains on delivering quality services and great value to our members while continuing to steer the business through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Board, the Leadership Team, and the wider business are all working hard to ensure we are keeping in touch with the changing needs of our members in the animal health, welfare and compliance space.
