APPLICATIONS have opened for three director vacancies on Dairy Australia's board ahead of elections and the November annual general meeting.
Two of the vacant positions are for directors with milk producer skills, while the other vacancy requires a director with dairy supply chain and product promotion skills.
The terms of two serving directors expire this year and another has retired.
Current directors James Mann, the DA chair, and David Lord have indicated they will stand for re-election, while Graeme Nicoll, who is serving in an interim capacity following the retirement of Jeff Odgers, will not stand for re-election.
DA board selection committee chair Professor Paul Wood said all levy payers had been advised of the vacancies.
"This is an important time as we work towards delivering against our strategic plan, and provide services that benefit and advance dairy farm businesses and the industry, including investment in research and innovation, learning and capability development, marketing, policy research, market insights, and trade development," Professor Wood said.
"We want to hear from candidates who are passionate about shaping a more profitable and sustainable industry."
DA's board is made up of eight non-executive directors and the managing director.
Candidates interested in applying should visit DA's website.
