Statement: MLA Board resignations

14 March 2018

George Scott and Allister Watson have resigned from the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), MLA Donor Company and Integrity Systems Company Boards to pursue other business opportunities.

The resignations are unrelated and the MLA Board is grateful to both men for the contribution each made to the company’s progress and to the industry in their role as MLA directors.

First elected to the MLA Board in November 2013, George brought lifelong experience in the north Australian cattle industry to the role and a broad knowledge of beef production systems, resource management, genetic development, breeding programs and land management.

Allister was elected in November 2016 and contributed the benefit of over 30 years’ experience in meat processing and retailing in Australia and New Zealand.  He also applied an excellent understanding of lot feeding, backgrounding, value adding, yields and retail ready product offerings.

The MLA Board thanks George and Allister for their service and wishes them well in their business and future endeavours.

The MLA Board Selection Committee is scheduled to hold its first meeting for 2018 in April, at which it will consider the skills, experience and industry knowledge on the MLA Board and to formulate the skills required for candidates in this year’s selection process.

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 to the MLA Board each year.  Successful nominees are recommended for election at the company’s AGM, which will be held in Canberra on 21 November.
