Make your vote count for fu­ture of in­dus­try

The Western Star - - NEWS RURAL -

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.”
