Last call for Sheep Producers Australia board director nominations

Sheep Central, August 18, 2022

SHEEP Producers Australia has issued a last call for candidates to fill two non-executive member-elected directors at the organisation’s annual general meeting in November.

The two vacancies have arisen due to the completion of the current terms of two non-executive member-elected directors, both of whom are eligible to stand for re-election.

Working with the SPA policy council, chief executive officer and team, board directors have the opportunity to contribute to the strategic direction of the national sheep industry while providing the governance oversight required for the organisation to perform its essential role.

This year the board is seeking applications from candidates with demonstrated experience in two or more of the following areas:

  • Practical farming knowledge and experience
  • An understanding of the challenges facing the Australian Sheep Industry & value chain
  • Strong farming and/or Industry networks knowledge
  • Good strategic thinking and analysis skills
  • Experience in managing organisations
  • Strong governance knowledge and skills
  • A passion to help the industry prosper in the future

“Directors of SPA play a vital role in ensuring the organisation is professional and efficient, capable of retaining the trust of all stakeholders,” SPA chairman Andrew Spencer said.

“I would encourage suitably experienced and qualified individuals, who are passionate about the red meat industry and want to make a difference, to apply for a director position,” he said.

“SPA’s role is to represent and promote the interests of Australian sheep producers by providing national sheep industry leadership, policy, and advocacy. The SPA Board values diversity of thinking and skills that encompass a broad range of high-level knowledge and experience.”

Sheep Producers Australia is the peak national industry body for the Australian sheep meat industry.  Based in Canberra, its purpose is to be a strategic leader working to benefit Australia’s sheep industry to achieve a productive, profitable, and sustainable future.

SPA’s vision is to be a trusted influencer, leader and advisor for Australian sheep producers, industry, and government. SPA is governed by a skills-based board, comprised of a minimum of four and maximum of seven non-executive member-elected directors and up to two board-appointed independent directors.

Applications close this Sunday, 21 August.
