Western Dairy seeking directors

The Western Dairy Board are calling for nominations to fill two vacant director positions at the Annual General Meeting to be held on Wednesday, 30 November 2022 at the Dolphin Discovery Centre, Bunbury. 

Western Dairy is a not-for-profit association that operates under the auspices of Dairy Australia to facilitate dairy industry research, development, and extension to support the sustainable growth of Western Australia’s 116 dairy businesses.

Western Dairy is overseen by a skills-based Board of Directors which comprises a dairy farmer majority, including the Chair, and a maximum of two directors with complementary industry or business skills.

Both Peter Evans, former Chair of Western Dairy from 2019 to 2021, and current Chair, Robin Lammie, are at the end of their respective terms. Mr Evans has indicated his intention not to stand for re-election. 

“I wish to thank Peter for his contribution to the Western Dairy Board over the past four years,” Mr Lammie said. “Peter has been an invaluable voice for the dairy industry not just at Western Dairy, but also in his previous roles as WAFarmers Dairy Section President and Australian Dairy Farmers Vice Chair.”

The Western Dairy Board is seeking either two dairy farmers or alternatively, one dairy farmer and one non-farmer with relevant industry expertise, to fill the upcoming vacancies. The term commences 30 November 2022 and is for a three-year period.

Under the terms of Western Dairy’s constitution, a dairy farmer director must be a levy-paying Western Australian dairy farmer and become a voting member of Western Dairy.

Applications must be received by 5pm Wednesday, 28 September 2022. Nominees must be available to be interviewed by a selection panel at a date to be agreed between 3 to 7 October 2022.
