Updated Announcement on International IVSA Events

Dear members of IVSA,

Since our first notice regarding COVID-19, the situation has changed immensely, and will continue to change  moving forward. We also recognize that the situation not only varies from region to region, but also from country to country, and even from city to city. Therefore, we will no longer be cancelling or discouraging (inter)national travel and events.
However, we do strongly encourage our members to follow national and international guidelines, as well as WHO recommendations, to limit disease spread. As veterinary students, it is our responsibility to use our knowledge on disease transmission, as well as our common sense, in the current circumstances. This means that limiting the spread of the disease should always remain as the number one priority.
We will  continue to evaluate  the situation and  ensure our website is kept up-to-date if and when we change our advice, so please continually check for updates. We understand this pandemic has already impacted many  IVSA members and will likely impact many more in the times to come. However, we believe we can still keep the IVSA spirit alive and well, even if this spirit is shared online rather than in person. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Executive Committee.

Announcement of the 69th IVSA Symposium (Special General Assembly) Online

We are very sorry to announce that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, IVSA Indonesia will no longer be able to host the 69th IVSA Symposium that was supposed to take place in January 2021. With this decision, the next international event will take the form of a Special General Assembly (SGA). The upcoming SGA will be taking place entirely online. Therefore, we are looking for motivated IVSA Members to help the IVSA Officials with organizing this event!

The SGA will take place on weekends 13th-14th of February and 27th-28th of February, 2021. The Online Organising Committee (OOC) members will help with delegates affairs, documents and activities, and are expected to be present for both weekends. The OOC will work in close contact with the MOD team as well as other IVSA Officials, and will be able to consult with them whenever needed.
