Nominations now open for Cattle Australia regional representation positions

Beef Central, 11/10/2023

The nomination process for Cattle Australia Regional Consultative Committee (RCC) and Board Director positions have opened this week, ahead of the peak industry council’s annual general meeting next month.

Cattle Australia announced yesterday that nominations are now open for 15 democratically elected RCC positions and two democratically elected Board Director positions (one from the North Australia Beef Research region and one from the Southern Australia Livestock Research region).

Both processes will provide members with the chance to have a key role in shaping the future of the grass-fed cattle industry.

Acting Cattle Australia CEO and Board Director, Adam Coffey, said the opening of nominations is a significant milestone for the national body with the election process guaranteeing Cattle Australia is driven by a Board of Directors and RCC chosen by the very people it represents – grass-fed cattle producers.

“We’re fortunate to have so many talented, passionate and hard-working Cattle Australia members in the grass-fed cattle industry, and we’d love to see these members throw their hat in the ring to help drive positive change in the industry,” said Mr Coffey.

Cattle Australia Chair, David Foote, said for the very first time, regional representation (via the RCC) will be sourced democratically with elected representatives playing an integral role in identifying priorities, whilst strengthening Cattle Australia’s direction through greater engagement with grassroots members.

“Elected RCC members will build on the excellent work of previous Policy Advisory Council members, expanding beyond policy to develop strategy around advocacy, consultation of members at a regional level and engagement of broader society,” said Mr Foote.
