Three serving directors’ board terms will expire at DA’s Annual General Meeting in November, with two indicating they will not be re-standing.
Under DA’s constitution, at least one of the vacant positions must be filled by a milk producer. ]
The other two vacancies are for a director with skills in agribusiness, innovation and adoption and one with a strong background in dairy processing.
Dairy Australia chair Jeff Odgers wrote to all dairy levy payers, outlining the nomination and election process.
He said it was critical that the board as a whole had the right mix of skills across all sections of the industry, as set out in the Dairy Australia Board Skills Matrix.
“This is an opportunity for new dairy leaders from right across the supply chain to play an important role in helping the industry meet the challenges we are facing,” Mr Odgers said.
The DA board determines the policies and directions for investing in dairy industry service activities, driving organisational performance and ensuring high standards of governance.
To stand for election, applicants must undergo a selection process overseen by a board selection committee, comprised of industry representatives.
Alternatively, candidates may stand for election if their nomination is endorsed with the signatures of 100 Group A members.
Milk producers interested in standing should review the instructions received in the post and apply to the board selection committee before 5pm, June 15.
