Candidates are being sought to fill one cattle producer representative position on the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) Board Selection Committee at this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), on 21 November 2018 in Canberra.
The role of the Selection Committee is to call for applications, review, interview and then report on the suitability of candidates for election to the MLA Board.
The Committee is currently made up of two non-voting MLA Directors, three representatives nominated by producer peak councils and four producer members who have been directly elected by MLA members – one sheepmeat, one grainfed cattle and two grassfed cattle representatives.
At this year’s AGM, MLA members have the opportunity to directly elect one cattle producer representative to the MLA Board Selection Committee for a three-year term, from cattle producer nominees.
All cattle producer nominees are put forward to the AGM for a vote by cattle producer members.
Cattle producer members wishing to nominate a person, or wishing to nominate themselves for election by cattle producer members to the MLA Board Selection Committee at the 2018 MLA AGM, must give written notice to MLA by 21 September 2018.
