The seats are:
Food Production – representing plant producers selling their plant products predominantly to those involved in the production of plants for fruit, vegetable and other food crops.
Forestry – representing plant producers selling seedlings for forestry.
Nominators need to be a member of one of these two Sectors to nominate someone for the Board positions and to vote. The person nominated for a Board position must be a Producer member of NZPPI but does not have to be a member of one of these two sectors. Successful candidates will serve on the Board for three years.
Vince Wylaars (food production) and Patrick Murray (forestry) currently represent these producer sectors. They shall retire at NZPPI’s June AGM and have both made themselves available for re-nomination.
There is a nomination form, and nominations close 5pm, Monday 19 March 2018.
