Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

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.”
