The results of the AGM are:
Colin Glass (Canterbury) and Jim van der Poel (Waikato) were voted in as farmer-elected directors for DairyNZ.
Peter Peter Schuyt and Barry Harris were also reappointed as board-appointed directors.
Changes to rules 31 and 32
Director terms are now three years, rather than four years. This will result in annual director elections and provide greater opportunity for fresh leadership on DairyNZ’s Board of Directors.
Approval of director remuneration
The Directors Remuneration Committee regularly reviews and recommends changes to directors’ payments and other benefits to ensure payments are at an appropriate level and effectively managed.
The payments and benefits recommended were approved by levy payers this year.
Directors Remuneration Committee member
This year dairy farmer Chris Lewis retired from the committee. No nominations were received for this position. The DairyNZ board will determine how this vacancy will be filled.
