Important update for MLA members 

MLA is changing how we allocate voting entitlements for our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

We are now implementing the use of the Levy Payer Register to calculate voting entitlements. This means we will not be sending you a Levies Notice as we no longer need the self-declaration of the Levies Notice. Voting entitlements will now be allocated based on the transactions that have occurred during the period 1 July 2022 – 30 June 2023, as notified to MLA by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.

What to do before to ensure you receive your full voting entitlement

To do this, we need your ABN as declared on your levy return form, so we can correctly match the levies you have paid on the Levy Payer Register to your MLA membership. (If you don’t have an ABN, please ensure your contact information is updated to be consistent with your levy return form).
