MLA seeks livestock producer representative
04 September 2023
Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) is looking to elect three producer representatives - one cattle, one sheep and one lot feeder - to its Board Selection Committee for a three-year term.
Producer members wishing to nominate a person or themselves for election to the MLA Board Selection Committee at the 2023 MLA AGM must give written notice to MLA by 18 September 2023. All producer nominees will be put forward to the AGM for a vote.
The role of the Selection Committee is to call for applications, review, interview and then report to members on the suitability of candidates for election or re election to the MLA Board of Directors.
The Selection Committee has nine members. The cattle, lot feeder and sheepmeat peak councils each appoint one member, two non voting members are MLA directors, and the remaining four members are producer representatives elected at the MLA AGM for a period of three years.
At the 2021 AGM, MLA cattle producer members voted to elect Julie McDonald to the Selection Committee, and she is completing year two of her three-year term.
Producer representatives on the Selection Committee are paid a sitting fee in accordance with MLA policy and expenses are covered for travel to attend meetings.
