Director election for DairyNZ

MEDIA RELEASE

Monday, 28 July 2014

For immediate release

Director election for DairyNZ

Nominations will open next month for a new farmer-elected director for DairyNZ’s board following the resignation of current board member Barbara Kuriger.

DairyNZ board chairman John Luxton says Mrs Kuriger, who is from Taranaki, is standing down from the board to dedicate herself to her new role as the National Party candidate for the Taranaki-King Country electorate in the September General Election.

“Barbara has served on dairy industry boards for 11 years and has made a significant contribution through her links with the Dairy Women’s Network. She was the first person to win the Dairy Woman of the Year title in 2012 and was a founding member of DairyNZ’s board when it was formed in 2007. She has been a passionate advocate for driving improvements in our industry’s training systems. She has also worked hard to increase understanding between urban and rural communities.

“I’d like to sincerely thank Barbara for all that she has done for the industry and we wish her the very best in her new challenge,” he says.

Barbara will officially step down from the board at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of DairyNZ in Timaru on Thursday, October 16.

Nominations for the farmer-elected position on the DairyNZ board open on Wednesday August 6 and close at noon on Friday August 29. Voting will open in September if more than one nomination is received and results will be announced at the AGM in October.

An information pack including nomination form is available from August 1 at www.dairynz.co.nz, email elections@electionz.com or telephone 0508 666 337.
