Applications for two director vacancies on the Dairy Australia board are now open ahead of elections at the annual general meeting in November.
The vacant positions are for a director with research, development and commercialisation skills, and a director with finance and risk management skills.
Current directors Paul Wood and Josephine Rozman will not stand for re-election at the November AGM.
Dairy Australia board selection committee chair Tania Luckin said letters had been sent to all levy payers calling for nominations.
"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," she said.
"We want to hear from candidates who are passionate about shaping a more profitable and sustainable industry and meet the skills requirement."
The board provides oversight of the organisation and ensures the dairy levy is invested in programs that support the profitability and sustainability of dairy farmers.
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.
Applications close June 3 at 5pm.
