Central and North Rural Weekly - - TOP 5 TOPICS -

TWO di­rec­tor po­si­tions were de­clared va­cant by ro­ta­tion, at the Na­tional Farm­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion (NFF) AGM.

The re­sult­ing votes saw Cat­tle Coun­cil of Aus­tralia pres­i­dent Tony He­garty re-elected and WAFarm­ers Fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent Tony York elected for the first time as an NFF board mem­ber.

Pres­i­dent Fiona Sim­son thanked out­go­ing di­rec­tor John East­burn for his ser­vice.

“The work and ac­com­plish­ments of or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the NFF are only pos­si­ble through the com­mit­ment of peo­ple like John,” she said.

“John’s wealth of gover­nance and rep­re­sen­ta­tive ex­pe­ri­ence was highly val­ued by his fel­low NFF board mem­bers and the greater mem­ber­ship group.

“I know John will keep in touch with the NFF and I’m sure he’ll be a men­tor to fu­ture NFF lead­ers.”
