Agforce announces seven sub-committees

Beef Central, 04/07/2023

QUEENLAND’S peak agricultural group Agforce has announced a long list of sub-committees to help formulate policy positions in different areas.

General president  announced the committees on the organisation’s website.

“As General President, when I am advocating on behalf of members and wider industry to the key decision-makers, it makes my job a lot easier to know that the positions I am promoting come from detailed, considered thinking and work by our policy committees and groups,” she said.

“These bodies are made up of volunteer Chairs and members with a passion for, and expertise in, their areas of interest, who selflessly contribute their time and energies to advance our members interests on critical issues and opportunities facing our sector.”
