Make your vote count for future of industry
QUEENSLAND wool growers are being urged to make their votes count not only in the State Election but also at Australian Wool Innovation’s Annual General Meeting next week so they help set the future direction of their wool industry.
AgForce Sheep and Wool Board Director Jim McKenzie said it was imperative all wool growers have their say and personally vote on each of the resolutions by the November 15 deadline.
“Queensland’s sheep and wool industry has started to rebuild in recent years, so it’s even more important we make our voices heard at the national level by voting on the size and make-up of the AWI Board,” he said.
“Australian Wool Innovation is the industry’s research, development and marketing body and is funded by woolgrower levies with a revenue of $88 million last financial year so its board has a powerful role to play in deciding where our industry heads into the future.”
