GRAINGROWERS’ mem­bers across Aus­tralia are en­cour­aged to cast their vote in the up­com­ing elec­tion of Western Re­gion board di­rec­tors. The GrainGrowers board con­sists of two grower di­rec­tors from each grain grow­ing re­gion – North­ern (Queens­land and north­ern NSW to Dubbo), South­ern (south of Dubbo, Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia) and Western (South Aus­tralia and Western Aus­tralia) and two non-grower di­rec­tors.

This year, mem­bers have the op­por­tu­nity to vote for the elec­tion of Western Re­gion board di­rec­tors, with fi­nal re­sults de­cided at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in Perth on Oc­to­ber 5.

Three can­di­dates have nom­i­nated for the two avail­able po­si­tions on the GrainGrowers Board: Rod­ney Birch, Michael Hunt and Rhys Tur­ton.

Trevor De Land­grafft has an­nounced his re­tire­ment from the board ef­fec­tive from the up­com­ing AGM.

GrainGrowers chair John East­burn said, in line with con­sti­tu­tional re­quire­ments, the board had en­dorsed two can­di­dates for elec­tion: Rod Birch and Rhys Tur­ton. “The board rec­om­mends mem­bers vote in favour of Mr Birch and Mr Tur­ton based on a skills assess­ment of each can­di­date, car­ried out by an in­de­pen­dent con­sul­tant.”
