MLA calls for board mem­bers

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

RED meat pro­duc­ers are be­ing re­minded that can­di­dates are be­ing sought to fill three pro­ducer rep­re­sen­ta­tive po­si­tions on the Meat and Live­stock Aus­tralia board se­lec­tion com­mit­tee.

The three can­di­dates will be filled at this year’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing to be held as part of Red Meat 2017 in Novem­ber in Alice Springs.

The role of the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee is to call for ap­pli­ca­tions, re­view, in­ter­view and then re­port to mem­bers on the suit­abil­ity of can­di­dates for elec­tion to the MLA board.

The com­mit­tee is made up of two non-vot­ing MLA di­rec­tors, three rep­re­sen­ta­tives nom­i­nated by pro­ducer peak coun­cils and four pro­ducer mem­bers who have been elected by MLA mem­bers – one sheep­meat, one grain­fed cat­tle and two grass­fed cat­tle rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

All pro­ducer nom­i­nees are put for­ward to the AGM for a vote by the pro­ducer mem­bers in each class.

Mem­bers wish­ing to nom­i­nate a per­son, or wish­ing to nom­i­nate them­selves for elec­tion by MLA pro­ducer mem­bers to the MLA Board Se­lec­tion Com­mit­tee at the 2017 AGM, must give writ­ten no­tice to MLA by Septem­ber 22, 2017.
