Outgoing director praised for service to NFF
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.”
