Nominations for Elected Directors are now open

As required by Australian Pork Limited’s (APL) constitution, two elected directors of Australian Pork Limited will retire at the AGM being held on 19 November 2020 and the two Elected Director positions will become vacant at that time.

Delegates will vote to elect candidates to the vacant positions at the AGM.

Nominations are being called for the APL elected director vacancies.

A producer member of APL or a current APL Director can nominate a person(s) to stand for election as an Elected Director.
