DairyNZ is again seeking aspiring directors who are interested in taking up an opportunity for an associate position on its board.
DairyNZ chairman John Luxton says the two non-voting positions will each serve for six months consecutively.
"We appointed our first two associate directors last year and it's been a great success. Elaine Cook and Grant Wills were our pioneers and they have proven that it's a worthwhile experience for those wanting to be directors. The DairyNZ board has also certainly gained from having fresh voices at the table," he says.
"I think we have a responsibility to help others get some first-hand knowledge of what it's like to sit around a board table and see governance in action. We need a pipeline of people coming through to serve on boards in our industry, and on other boards too. This is a practical way we can help build people's confidence and skills by learning from others."
Anyone interested in applying for the DairyNZ associate director positions should be current dairy farmers, have a proven commitment to governance and aspire to be a leader in the dairy industry.
To apply, applicants need to send a covering letter and a curriculum vitae to the Company Secretary, DairyNZ Incorporated by post: Private Bag 3221, Hamilton 3240 or by e-mail to: email@example.com
Applications close July 21, 2014.
