Honorary members

In 2010 the ESVE board decided to start a new tradition in order to honour those individuals who have provided an exceptional contribution over their lifetime to veterinary endocrinology.


The choice of such individual will be voted on by the membership and the honorary membership will be awarded on an ad hoc basis. Any ESVE member can propose a colleague for this award.
