Meat & Livestock Australia members are being reminded that they have one week to submit their Levies Notice to secure full voting entitlements for this year’s Annual General Meeting.
The levies notice pack has been mailed to all MLA members and must be completed and lodged by October 1.
MLA managing director Richard Norton said producers should make every effort to submit their levies notice which would secure their full voting entitlements at the AGM.
“Voting at MLA’s AGM is one very important way that producers can be directly involved in how their levies are being invested in marketing and research and development, and setting the future direction of MLA, and we want our members to have greater input into the company’s direction than ever before,” Mr Norton said.
At the AGM, members can vote on the appointment of MLA directors and any resolutions put forward by the company or its members.
Cattle producer members will also have the opportunity to elect an additional grassfed cattle representative to the board director selection committee.
Members who don’t submit their levies notice will automatically receive just one vote for any MLA ballots.
This process is voluntary, but by returning this notice or lodging online, members inform MLA of the amount of levies paid in the last financial year and will have their voting entitlement calculated in accordance with MLA’s constitution.
This year’s MLA annual general meeting will be held on 10 November at the Mercure Hotel, Brisbane. MLA members who are unable to attend the AGM can still vote by proxy or attorney.
