Federated Farmers 60th National Conference

Federated Farmers 60th National Conference

Federated Farmers of New Zealand's 60th National Conference will be held at the Tainui Novotel, Hamilton on July 26-27.

About 100 delegates and observers are expected to attend.

Federated Farmers' President Tom Lambie will address the conference – his last as president – at 10:40 am on Tuesday, July 26.

Mr Lambie is standing down after completing his three-year term. By the end of the two-day conference, Federated Farmers will have a new president, vice-president, and some new faces on the five-person national board.

The conference also includes an address by Dr Barry O'Neill, MAF's assistant director general in charge of biosecurity. He speaks at 3 pm on the first day, and is followed by a panel of MPs and spokespeople from eight political parties debating rural-specific issues.

Members of the media are welcome to attend. But please note the meeting will likely go into committee from time to time, at which point you will be asked to temporarily leave the meeting.

Federated Farmers of New Zealand's 60th National Conference is generously sponsored by Bayleys Real Estate, FMG, National Bank of New Zealand, Ravensdown Fertiliser Co-operative, Rural Post, and Telecom New Zealand.
