Six DairyNZ spots up for election
Monday 3 August, 2015
Nominations open this week for farmer-elected directors on the board of DairyNZ, with one spot vacated by long-serving chairman John Luxton, who is standing down from the industry body.
This year, three farmer positions are open for election to the Board of Directors and another three positions are up for election on DairyNZ's Directors Remuneration Committee.
Nominations open on August 5 and close on August 28, with voting held from September.
John Luxton, DairyNZ's chairman since 2007, is standing down. He was a founding director of DairyNZ, during the transition from two earlier industry organisations - Dexcel and Dairy Insight. John began as a director with Dexcel in 2003.
Two other directors' positions are up for election, with Michael Spaans and Ben Allomes retiring by rotation, but still eligible to stand for re-election.
The second election is for Directors Remuneration Committee members, which annually considers and recommends remuneration for directors of DairyNZ.
Returning officer Anthony Morton says nominations for all six positions must be received by 12noon on Friday, August 28.
"All farmers paying a levy on milksolids to DairyNZ are eligible to stand for election."
An information pack outlining criteria and nomination requirements for the positions can be obtained from the returning officer or via the websites.
"If more than the required nominations are received, elections will be carried out by postal, fax and internet voting using the STV (single transferable vote) voting method. Votes will be weighted by annual milksolids production. Voter packs will be posted on September 14 to all registered DairyNZ levy payers," he says.
Results will be announced at the DairyNZ Annual General Meeting in the Waikato on Tuesday, October 13.
