VFF calls for nominations

Victorian Farmers Federation has announced the formal notice of its 2020 elections and is calling for nominations across a wide range of representative positions.

Federation return officer and chief executive Stephen Sheridan said nominations would be open until the close of business on October 22. 

“VFF is calling for nominations for president and vice-president roles, as well as a number of VFF commodity groups and policy council positions,” he said.

“The process will be conducted over the course of the next few months and we will announce the election results on December 10.”

The VFF election process will be predominantly online as a result of COVID-19 restrictions on workplaces and public gatherings.

“Elections will be undertaken via electronic voting with an option available for members to use a postal ballot if they prefer or do not have the ability to cast an electronic vote,” Mr Sheridan said.         

“The VFF has engaged a third party, Link Market Services, to conduct the election. Link Market Services is well qualified and regarded, providing similar services to a number of major listed companies and not-for-profit organisations.”

The VFF is encouraging all members to ensure their membership contact details, including email addresses, are correct to enable them to participate in the election process.

“As an organisation, we exist to be the voice of Victorian farmers, so it is important as many of our members as possible have their say on who they want to represent their views,” Mr Sheridan said.

Further details including all open positions, forms, processes and key dates are available on website
