The Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA), the peak national body representing the Australian cattle feedlot industry, has called for nominations for its directly elected Board of Directors.
ALFA’s Board is comprised of directly elected feedlot representatives and each year Feedlot Members are afforded the democratic right to nominate and elect Directors to its Board.
ALFA President, Mr Bryce Camm said that it’s a model that has stood the test of time in delivering passionate representatives who strive to deliver on ALFA’s value proposition to feedlot businesses.
“The ALFA Board is steely focused on representing the interests of lot feeders and delivering on our mission to improve the profitability, professionalism and community standing of the cattle feedlot industry via industry representation, strategic levy investment, industry development activities and membership assistance”, Mr Camm said.
“Through ALFA’s Feedlot Membership category, ALFA proudly represent the direct interests of its members who hold approximately 70% of Australia’s cattle feedlot capacity”, Mr Camm said.
ALFA has a strong culture of representing the interests of lot feeders and the feedlot industry and it does this through:
Strategic Levy Investment - Directing the expenditure of the grain fed cattle transaction levy.
Industry Development - Improving industry settings and opportunities through the development and delivery of standards, training, events, leadership, awards, career development and employment opportunities.
Membership Services - Providing membership services and delivering on its value proposition to feedlot operators and other stakeholders.
Nomination forms have been distributed to all ALFA Feedlot Members. Candidates are required to be nominated by a current financial Feedlot Member, proposed by a Feedlot Member and seconded by another Feedlot Member. Nominations are due by 28 August 2019.
Candidates will be put forward for election at ALFA’s Annual General Meeting to be held in Dalby QLD on 4 October 2019 as part of ALFA’s SMARTBEEF 2019 conference.
