CATTLE Council of Australia’s 2020 Annual General Meeting will go ahead online, as the ongoing coronavirus response limits face to face gatherings.
In accordance with the rotational board positions, CCA is now calling for director nominations from four state farming organisations – AgForce, Livestock SA, Western Australia Farmers Federation and Victorian Farmers Federation – and the independent north and south positions.
Cattle Council Chief Executive Officer Travis Tobin said it was important to get as many members to cast their votes as possible.
“I urge all members to check their logins, so they can have their say once voting opens,” Mr Tobin said.
“If you can’t sign into Cattle Council’s website, please contact us to make sure you’re set up.
“Voting for director positions will be run through the CCA website from mid-October until 8.00am on the morning of the Annual General Meeting – Wednesday 18 November 2020.
“The independent north and independent south director nominations are due by Wednesday 7 October 2020 and must be supported by 20 direct members.
“These positions are directly elected, and I encourage any Cattle Council member who wants the best outcomes for producers and industry to submit their nomination before the closing date.”
“The AGM will be held via Microsoft Teams, immediately after online voting closes.
“Members wanting to join the virtual AGM will also need to register, so they can be issued with a link to join the meeting.”
Members have been issued an official notice of AGM, with nomination forms for office holder elections.
