Present Dairy Australia chair and SA dairyfarmer James Mann, Wye, will be standing again.

The call is out for applications for three director vacancies on Dairy Australia's board ahead of elections at the Annual General Meeting in November.

Two of the vacant positions are for directors with milk producer skills, while the other vacancy requires a director with dairy supply chain and product promotion skills.

The terms of two serving directors expire this year and another director has retired.

Presently-serving director James Mann - who serves as DA chair - and David Lord have indicated they will stand for re-election, while Graeme Nicoll will not stand for re-election.

DA Board Selection Committee chair Paul Wood said a letter was being sent to all levy payers calling for nominations for the director vacancies.

"This is an important time as we work towards delivering against our strategic plan, and provide services that benefit and advance dairy farm businesses and the industry, including investment in research and innovation, learning and capability development, marketing, policy research, market insights, and trade development," he said.

"We want to hear from candidates who are passionate about shaping a more profitable and sustainable industry."

DA's board has eight non-executive directors and the managing director.

The board provides oversight of the organisation and ensures the dairy levy is invested in programs that support the profitability and sustainability of dairyfarmers.

To stand for election, applicants must undergo a selection process, overseen by a Board Selection Committee.

Alternatively, candidates may stand for election if their nomination is endorsed with the signatures of at least 100 current Group A members.

Candidates interested in applying for the director positions should head to dairyaustralia.com.au/directorelections with applications closing May 31.
