B+LNZ calls for director nominations for Annual Meeting


Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) today announced nominations have opened for two B+LNZ director roles and one position on its Directors’ Independent Remuneration Committee (DIRC).

Under the requirements of the B+LNZ constitution, two electoral district directors and one existing DIRC member retire by rotation at the Annual Meeting.

This year directors Kirsten Bryant (Western North Island) and Bill Wright (Central South Island), and DIRC member David Nelson will be those retiring by rotation. They are permitted to seek re-election. Bill Wright and David Nelson have both indicated they will seek re-election while Kirsten Bryant has indicated she will not.

B+LNZ is also inviting remits for its Annual Meeting.

“The strength of an organisation like Beef + Lamb New Zealand is based on participation and engagement at all levels, so I really encourage farmers to put up their hand to be nominated and vote in the director elections.” says B+LNZ Chairman Andrew Morrison.

All nominations and remits must be made on official forms and be received by the Returning Officer by 5pm on Friday 14 December 2018.

Voting papers and any remits will be sent to all farmers who appear on the B+LNZ electoral roll. The electoral roll will close at 5pm Friday 25 January 2019. Farmers can check in advance if they are on the roll by contacting B+LNZ on 0800 233 352.

Voting will be conducted by postal and internet voting, with voting papers being posted to farmers on the B+LNZ electoral roll. All voting for B+LNZ and DIRC elections will close on election day, and postal and internet voting for company resolutions and remits close on the same date, Friday 15 March 2019 at 2pm.

Farmers will, however, be able to vote in person on company resolutions and remits only at the Annual Meeting.

Farmers must farm within the relevant electorate to be eligible to vote for the Board of Directors vacancies.

The DIRC vote is, however, open to all livestock farmers on the B+LNZ roll who meet the minimum livestock threshold.

To be eligible to vote in these elections, submit Annual Meeting remits and vote for farmer resolutions, a livestock farmer must have owned at least 250 sheep, or 50 beef cattle, or 100 dairy cattle, on 30 June 2018.

Official forms and other information regarding the elections are available from www.electionz.com/blnz2019, by emailing iro@electionz.com, or phoning 0800 666 040.

Questions regarding B+LNZ elections should be directed to Returning Officer Warwick Lampp on 0800 666 040.

Questions regarding Annual Meeting remits should be directed to B+LNZ Chief Operating Officer Cros Spooner on 0800 233 352.
