Queensland grain growers with a strong understanding of the grains industry – and a commitment to industry development – have been invited to apply for a position on the Board of GrainGrowers.

Applications for two Grower Director positions opened on May 1 and will close on May 31.

GrainGrowers chair Rhys Turton said attracting motivated growers that could consider a whole-of-industry approach to issues was essential for the organisation’s future development.

“As an industry organisation, we take pride in addressing relevant industry challenges at a national level,” Mr Turton said.

“Having the right Board members with the commitment and drive to get involved and manage this change helps GrainGrowers to maintain its position as a strong industry representative body.”

Additional desirable skills include:

  • Engagement with members, the broader industry and government stakeholders
  • Investment and risk-management experience
  • An understanding of either finance/accounting or sustainability/environmental, social and governance (ESG)
