Seven candidates seek DairyNZ board seat
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.
Electionz.com 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.
