The British Veterinary Receptionist Association (BVRA) has launched The Veterinary Receptionist of the Year Award, sponsored by Feliway® and Adaptil®. The winner will be announced at the Association’s annual congress on 16th March 2019 in Sutton Coldfield.
To celebrate the launch, three golden tickets will be sent via wholesaler deliveries to three randomly selected practices within the UK. Each golden ticket entitles the bearer to a free place for one person at the BVRA’s Annual Congress. The congress programme includes keynote speaker Benjamin Mee, whose amazing story has been turned into a Hollywood movie featuring Matt Damon.
BVRA founder Brian Faulkner MRCVS says “Veterinary receptionists are as crucial to the success of a veterinary practice as any other role. They are first and last impression a client has of a veterinary practice and the association is keen to recognise and reward their unique contribution to the industry. We’ve been astounded by how popular the BVRA has been since its launch one year ago with receptionists at every level of experience, reporting appreciation as well as the benefits of Accredited Veterinary Receptionist Award. It’s entirely appropriate that BVRA champions ‘best practice’ and therefore the BVRA’s Veterinary Receptionist of the Year Award will recognise their hard work.”
Nominations for the award are welcomed from both clients and veterinary colleagues. Nominations should highlight the dedication and effort the nominee demonstrates. Entries must be received by 31st January 2019* and nominations are made via the BVRA website – https://www.bvra.co.uk/Home/CPD.
Three finalists will be chosen and invited to attend BVRA’s 2nd Annual congress where the winner will be announced.
Brian added “We’re so grateful to all of our corporate sponsors in helping us get BVRA off the ground and grow. We are especially grateful to Feliway® and Adaptil®, sponsors of The Veterinary Receptionist of the Year Award. A motivated and inspired veterinary receptionist can be the difference between whether a client registers with your practice or not. So why not log onto the www.bvra.co.uk right now and nominate that receptionist who deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated?”
