WoolPoll mem­bers named

Countryman - - WOOL -

The panel of wool­grower rep­re­sen­ta­tives to as­sist in this year’s WoolPoll has been fi­nalised.

Every three years, Aus­tralian wool­grow­ers set the fu­ture fund­ing level of their wool re­search, de­vel­op­ment and mar­ket­ing body by vot­ing through WoolPoll.

The panel works with Aus­tralian Wool In­no­va­tion and en­dorses the vot­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion and pro­cesses, en­sur­ing trans­parency and in­tegrity through­out. Panel mem­bers also play a crit­i­cal role in en­cour­ag­ing grow­ers to vote in the demo­cratic process of the poll.

In Novem­ber, 2017, AWI ap­pointed South Aus­tralian wool­grower Syd­ney Lawrie to be chair­man for the 2018 Panel.

“Based on ad­vice of the 2015 Panel and AWI Board, I asked grower rep­re­sen­ta­tive groups to put for­ward nom­i­nees that would re­flect the di­ver­sity of the Aus­tralian wool in­dus­try,” Mr Lawrie said.

Among the panel mem­bers is CBH di­rec­tor John Has­sell of Pin­gelly.

Wool­grow­ers will be pro­vided with a Voter In­for­ma­tion Mem­o­ran­dum in Septem­ber, which will de­tail the levy rate op­tions as de­ter­mined by the AWI Board, how AWI pro­poses to in­vest the levy funds at each levy rate, as well as levy rate rec­om­men­da­tions.
