Levy payers in the small (<2,000 tonnes), medium (2,001-50,000 tonnes) and large (50,001+ tonnes) producer categories are called on to nominate suitably qualified candidates for the vacant positions.
This is an excellent opportunity for interested candidates to become involved in the Australian wine industry's own R&D organization, and provide a 'coalface' perspective on the direction and priorities of the AWRI's research, development, extension and commercialisation activities.
All levy payers should have received an explanatory letter and nomination form via email in the first week of September. Nomination forms and further information on the AWRI Board and details of the nomination/election process can be found on the AWRI website.
Nominations close on Friday, 26 September 2014 at 5:00 pm, and successful candidates will take office on 1 January 2015 for a term of three years.
Nomination forms and more information can be found here.
