Dr Tjeerd Jorna, Knight in the Order of Oranje Nassau

Former FVE president Dr Tjeerd Jorna was appointed Knight in the Order of Oranje Nassau on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands (30 April), in recognition of his contributions to the development of veterinary medicine. The decoration was awarded by the Dutch Minister of Agriculture, Ms Gerda Verburg.
Although Tjeerd Jorna already has an impressive career behind him, this does not necessarily mean it has come to an end! The Royal Netherlands Veterinary Association nominated him as a candidate for the World Veterinary Association presidential elections, to be held on 30 July in Vancouver.
WVA delegates who are unable to attend the elections may appoint a so-called Temporary Substitute, to avoid votes being lost. For further information please contact WVA secretariat in Copenhagen (phone + 45 38710156 or e-mail:
