WCABP's Bylaws indicate that an Honorary Life Membership may be awarded to an individual who is 65 years of age and has made an Outstanding contribution to either the affairs of the Association or veterinary profession. Members nominate a potential recipient by forwarding a letter to WCABP's Secretary-Treasurer, Dr. Murray Jelinski, which outlines the nominee's achievements and why the person is worthy of an Honorary Life membership. This must then be passed by two-thirds (2/3) majority vote at the AGM.

Consider nominating a deserving individual. Awards will be presented at the WCABP 2019 AGM.
