The Dairy Australia Board is seeking directors to fill upcoming vacancies and to be appointed at the November 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Two of the four vacant positions are for farmers with milk producer skills, one is for a director with agribusiness, innovation and adoption skills, and another for a director with dairy supply chain and product promotion skills.
Farmers and those with the relevant skills and experience are encouraged to stand for one of the board director positions and to play a role in governance and strategic direction of Dairy Australia.
It's an important time as Dairy Australia works towards shaping a profitable and sustainable industry by providing services that benefit and advance dairy farm businesses and the industry. These services deliver value by enhancing farm business management, supporting employment and people development, driving herd and feed innovation, managing climate and environment, promoting Australian dairy and the commitment to sustainability, supporting international dairy markets, contributing to policy development, and responding to critical issues and events.
Dairy Australia's Board comprises eight non-executive directors and the managing director. At least four directors must be farmers or those with milk producer skills. A Board Skills Matrix specifies the mix of skills required by directors and is aligned with Dairy Australia's funding agreement with the Commonwealth Government.
