BVU Structure

The BVU is made up of BVU Members, who feed into and elect a Branch Committee and a Branch Executive.

Our Branch Executive is made up of a Branch Chair, Branch Vice Chair, Branch Secretary, Branch Treasurer and Branch Equalities Officer.

Often the roles of secretary and treasurer are held by one officer.

The next elections for the Branch Executive will be held in Spring 2025

Our Branch Committee (formerly known as the OPC: Organising Professional Committee) currently has the following positions:

  • Organising reps
  • Workplace/Companion reps
  • Student reps
  • Social media manager
  • RCVS rep

We may look to expand our Branch Committee at any time in the future – either by having more reps in the roles listed above, or by creating new roles as demand for particular services increases.
