Directors and Team

The CVC programme is an initiative of the South African Veterinary Association (SAVA).  It is implemented by a programme team overseen by a Board of Directors that meet twice a year and the SAVA Board of Directors meet quarterly. The Manager reports to the Board of Directors on a monthly basis. Below is a table with the names of individuals participating in the different governance structures of CVC to oversee the programme.
