A Reminder For Dairy Farmers

A Reminder For Dairy Farmers To Get Their Candidate Nominations In

The nomination period for candidates to stand in the Dairy InSight Inc Board elections and The Dexcel Trust trustee elections closes in two weeks. Dairy farmers only have until 5pm on Friday 21 March 2003 to fill out a Nomination Pack and return to Returning Officer Warwick Lampp.

Nomination packs can be obtained by calling the Election Hotline 0508 666 446 or contacting Warwick Lampp at

All dairy farmers who supply milksolids to a dairy company are eligible to stand and/or nominate a candidate in these elections.

The nomination process requires the consent of the candidate and must be seconded by other dairy farmers who supply milksolids to a dairy company. Each candidate has the opportunity to provide a candidate profile statement and passport size photo with their nomination paper. These profiles will be published by the Returning Officer in a candidate profile booklet which will be distributed with the voting papers.

Warwick Lampp says if there is one thing farmers need to remember, it is to get their nominations in with plenty of time to spare.

“If a Nomination form is incorrectly completed or an ineligible nominator is provided, we need time to get back to those involved and correct the situation, or the Nomination Paper could be invalidated. It is important farmers do not leave lodging nominations to the last minute,” Warwick Lampp says.

Once the nomination period has closed, all dairy farmers will receive voter packs in the post from 9 May 2003, with the election period closing Friday 30 May, 2003.
