Swanepoel The year has started at a furious pace and the annual congress has been and gone in a flash. I was fortunate to attend the first day of the congress as well as the pre congress SAEVA executive meetings. The congress is a truly unique event with such world class speakers for a relatively small group. The YMG have kindly provided a congress report for this edition of the EHU. Members can access the full congress proceedings through the website. BEVA have reported a good response to the affiliate membership and we have included more information for this offer for SAEVA members. BEVA have also kindly extended a 30% discount to their annual congress to all SAEVA members. The promotional code included in this edition can be used to access this discount. On a sad note it was extremely bad news to hear of the passing of Jim Antrobus. I would guess most SAEVA members would have met Jim at some stage and I think unanimously it would be agreed that Jim was a wonderful person and a credit to our profession. We include a few pages in this edition in memory of Jim. Finally thanks to Madaleen and Heinrich at Vetlink for putting this magazine together. Heinrich has recently taken over from Danielle and has done a great job in a short period.
