Dalby farmer added to Cotton Australia board
DARLING Downs cotton grower Matt McVeigh has been appointed a member of Cotton Australia’s board.
Mr McVeigh took up the role at the organisation’s annual general meeting, held recently in Griffith, New South Wales.
He takes the position of Stuart Armitage, a long-term board member who retired from his position at the same meeting.
Mr McVeigh is a third-generation Dalby farmer and was welcomed to the board by Cotton Australia chairman Simon Corish.
“Matt brings a great deal of experience and knowledge to Cotton Australia’s board, particularly for someone so young,” Mr Corish said.
“A Nuffield scholar, Matt also participates in national and local industry committees.
“His leadership qualities and commitment to the industry and the community are outstanding.
“He assumes the position on our board vacated by Stuart Armitage, who has served tirelessly for Cotton Australia for six years.
“While we are sad to see Stuart depart from Cotton Australia’s board, we are glad he will continue his advocacy on behalf of farmers as president of the Queensland Farmers’ Federation, of which Cotton Australia is a member.”
