Seven can­di­dates seek DairyNZ board seat

Stratford Press - - News -

A po­si­tion on DairyNZ’s Board of Di­rec­tors has at­tracted seven dairy farmer can­di­dates.

Since Mon­day this week, levy­pay­ing dairy farm­ers have been able to vote for their pre­ferred can­di­dates in this year’s DairyNZ Board of Di­rec­tors elec­tion.

The suc­cess­ful board can­di­date will play a key role in sup­port­ing the gov­er­nance and lead­er­ship of DairyNZ.

Elec­ re­turn­ing of­fi­cer An­thony Mor­ton says farm­ers will have un­til Oc­to­ber 30 to cast their vote.

“This elec­tion pro­vides dairy farm­ers with a chance to vote for the can­di­dates they feel will pro­vide the lead­er­ship and di­rec­tion they’d like to see on the DairyNZ board,” says An­thony.

“So we en­cour­age levy pay­ing dairy farm­ers to look out for the vote pack in the mail from early Oc­to­ber, and to take the time to learn more about the can­di­dates and cast their vote.”

The 2018 DairyNZ Board of Di­rec­tors can­di­dates are: Steve Atkin­son, Wardville; Tim Bar­rett, New Ply­mouth; Tracy Brown, Mata­mata; Greg Mitchell, Napier; Mike Mont­gomerie, Cam­bridge; An­drew Robb, Grey­mouth, Jac­que­line Rowarth, Ti­rau.

DairyNZ’s board con­sists of five farmer-elected di­rec­tors and three board-ap­pointed di­rec­tors.

This year’s farmer-elected di­rec­tor role is cur­rently va­cant.

The suc­cess­ful can­di­dates for the board and DRC will be an­nounced at DairyNZ’s An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing in In­ver­cargill on Oc­to­ber 31.
