Final call for AGM remits

Final call for AGM remits

Meat & Wool New Zealand is inviting levy payer comment on key issues in New Zealand’s red meat and wool industries for discussion at its March Annual General Meeting.

This year’s AGM on the Claxby property, at Swannanoa in Canterbury, is on March 16 and will be followed by the Meat & Wool New Zealand Conference the following day in Christchurch.

Livestock farmers who want to propose remits are invited to submit their comments by Tuesday 18 January on the official form, says Board Secretary Androula Dometakis.

All remits, other than those that could be binding on the company, require 10 signatures of levy payers who are registered on the Meat & Wool New Zealand electoral roll. Remits will be included with voting documents that will be sent to farmers in early February.

To register, levy payers must fill out a voter registration form by Tuesday February 1 and this can be obtained from the Election Hotline 0508-666-336. Registration also gives levy payers the right to vote in the Director elections.

Only one position on the Board will be contested in the March 2 election, the position of Western North Island Director.

Voters in the Western North Island electoral district are encouraged to check that they are on the electoral roll. To be eligible to vote, a livestock farmer must have owned at least 250 sheep or goats or a combined total of these, or 50 beef cattle or 100 dairy cattle, on June 30 2004.

Voter registration and remit forms and other information about the Director election and remit process are available from Returning Officer Warwick Lampp on the 0508-666-336 Election Hotline.
