Cattle Council of Australia and Meat & Livestock Australia are offering seven places in a five-day Australian Institute of Company Directors course for grassfed cattle producers to develop their skills in corporate governance.
The AICD Course is a comprehensive program designed to focus on areas of business management and skills development that are specific to cattle producers.
Cattle producers who have a desire to provide leadership within the beef industry are encouraged to apply.
Seven positions are available, with one applicant to be selected from state and territory.
Cattle Council CEO, Margo Andrae said the course was an excellent opportunity for beef producers to increase their understanding of risk management, financial performance and enhance their business skills.
“The knowledge gained through this intensive five-day program gives participants the tools and resources to take on Director roles within the industry as well as contribute to their own business acumen,” Ms Andrae said.
She said the selection criteria will guarantee that a diverse range of producers are chosen, to ensure that all aspects of the industry are represented in the program.
‘The long-term productivity and profitability of the grassfed beef industry is reliant on strong leadership which we believe can be enhanced with this accreditation for cattle producers.”
The AICD course is administered by Australian Institute of Company Directors, and participants undertake an assessment to achieve official recognition as a Graduate of the course.
Applications close on Wednesday 31 January 2018.
