Livestock SA is seeking livestock producers with the skills, networks and passion to nominate for its board and assist in guiding implementation of its new strategic plan.
Livestock SA has five board positions becoming vacant at the next annual general meeting, to be held on August 29, in conjunction with Growing SA Conference.
Livestock SA chief executive Travis Tobin encouraged members to consider nominating because the board represents a great opportunity for producers to contribute to their industry and drive its future.
“For experienced industry leaders, it is a chance to give back to the industry.
“For emerging leaders, it is an excellent opportunity to gain a greater understanding of industry-government relations, how Livestock SA works in advocating for them and, at a personal level, continue developing their leadership and governance skills,” he said.
“I encourage all Livestock SA members who are passionate about their industry and believe they have something to offer to throw their hat in the ring.”
To nominate, producers must be a member of Livestock SA and submit a nomination form.
Members will vote on which of the nominated producers will represent them.
This will be conducted through an external online process TrueVote to ensure transparency.
Successful candidates will be announced at the AGM.
Interested members can contact Livestock SA for a nomination form on 08 8297 2299.
Forms must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on July 18.
