NZVA member fees established for 2021

NZVA member fees

Over the last three years the NZVA has been going through the NZVA Change Project. We have consulted with members, branch committees, employers, partners, staff, and other stakeholders. The new inclusive membership model is one of the final pieces of the puzzle and we are pleased to be able to bring this to you in 2021.

Only one membership fee

There is now only one membership fee to join the NZVA and Special Interest branches (SIBs), giving you all inclusive access to any technical information you want. When you renew your membership, you will nominate the top three SIBs that you would like to associate with according to your work activity, and indicate what other branches are of interest to you.

Most fees have gone down

NZVA is delivering more for less! Most membership fees have been reduced (see table) and further discounts will be applied according to when membership is paid and what percentage of veterinarians in a clinic are members. If 100% of veterinarians in a clinic sign up, then all support staff (administration/veterinary nurses) will receive free Associate Membership, and get access to the wellbeing hub, discounted CPD, and non-technical information.

How do I get the discounts?

Discounts are varied according to whether your membership is paid in full by the 31 January 2021 and/or 100% of eligible veterinarians in your business are members. Come on board and help us be stronger together as an association, and get the most from member benefits.
