What benefits do I get by becoming a BEVA Member?

So you have got your BEVA membership but do you really know how many great benefits you have now inherited?! BEVA is continually trying to make our services better for you, so we add further benefits each year as well as reviewing the ones we already have. If you have ideas as to what you would like to see please make sure you contact us - membership@beva.org.uk

On offer at present we have:

  • 50% off our wonderful CPD program! Our courses range from regional meetings to core skills workshops, advanced level specialist courses over three days and our popular Clinical Workshops. The BEVA CPD features over 50 courses each year with new additions coming all the time and if you think we are missing something let us know your course suggestions and if yours gets added to our calendar you can come along for free!
  • Discounted entry to BEVA Congress and reciprocal member rates at other conferences worldwide. So as well as soaking up everything BEVA Congress has to offer why not sample AAEP, the London Vet Show or a trip to Australia for EVA Congress at a discounted rate?
  • Unlimited access to Equine Veterinary Journal and Equine Veterinary Education. As well as hardcopies of our world renowned journals each month you have access to the ENTIRE back library of both journals in the BEVA Members Area and EVE/EVJ Apps. A popular addition to this in recent years has been the EVJ/EVE Podcasting series, which are perfect for you to listen to in the car between calls... earning CPD in otherwise wasted time… what more could you want!
