PRODUCERS will be able to watch this year's MLA annual general meeting regardless of their location, with the event to be live streamed for the first time.
Producers need to register through the MLA website for online access to the MLA producer forum and the managing director and chair's address during the AGM.
The AGM will be held on Tuesday, November 10 at 2pm in the Chelsea Boardroom, at the Mercure Hotel, Brisbane.
The producer forum starts at 11am in the same location.
MLA managing director Richard Norton said it was crucial that as a producer-owned organisation, members had every chance to be involved in how their levies were invested and setting the future direction of MLA.
At the AGM, members will also be asked to vote on the appointment of three first-time nominees as MLA directors, and for the first time cattle producer members will elect an additional grassfed cattle representative to the Board Director Selection Committee.
Levy payers will also be able to ask questions at the AGM or submit questions online, prior to the event, via the MLA website.
At the 11am producer forum key senior MLA staff will provide an overview of levy investments across the business – from research and development, marketing and international business areas.
MLA members not attending the AGM can still vote by proxy or attorney – by completing and returning their proxy form by post or online at www.computershare.com.au/mlavotin g by 2pm (Qld time) this Sunday, November 8.
Pre-registration for live streaming is essential.
