Please note that the Australian Veterinary Association 2014 Annual Workforce Survey is still available for you to complete
2014 survey link
The purpose of the annual survey is to examine the current profile of the veterinary profession and anticipate future trends and changes. The information collected will help the profession, government, veterinary boards and others to understand how the provision of veterinary services may be affected by various factors, including increasing numbers of veterinary graduates, career breaks, part-time working, early retirement and veterinarians choosing to work outside the profession. The report from last year is publicly available on the AVA website at 2013 Annual Workforce Survey. The 2014 survey will collect similar data to allow trends analysis, with a few improvements based on the recommendations by the statistician who analysed the 2013 results.
The Board and Racing NSW continue to negotiate, with the assistance of representatives of the State government, in order to reach an alternative to the licensing regime proposed by RNSW. We have been advised by Racing NSW that the commencement of Local Rule 82C and licensing has been deferred to Friday 1 August 2014.
