Affiliate organisations

The WAVD supports groups, projects and organizations that align with our vision and mission. It welcomes applications from interested parties for formal affiliation with the WAVD. Affiliation requires approval by the WAVD Administrative Committee.

An application for affiliation with WAVD from an organization or group allied with any aspect of veterinary dermatology, not currently represented by a member organization (ESVD, ECVD, AAVD, ACVD, CAVD, DCACVSc, AiSVD), will be considered.

Applications from organizations or groups with global rather than local activities in the field of veterinary dermatology will be given preferential consideration. If approved, affiliation will be normally for 3 years and will be reassessed before the end of that period.
