2019 VFF AGM and Vice-President ELECTION


The position of Vice-President fell vacant with the resignation of Brett Hosking following his appointment as Chair of GrainGrowers Ltd. As per the constitution, the VFF Executive Board has subsequently decided to put the position of VFF Vice-President to the membership for election.

Two candidates have been nominated VFF Vice-President, triggering an election. The VFF congratulates Emma Germano and Gemma Monk for stepping forward for the position of Vice-President.

Postal voting ballots have been sent to members. Postal ballots must be received by the VFF by Monday 25 February. Members with email addresses have been emailed an invitation to vote electronically. Electronic votes must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 25 February. 

It is the VFF’s intent to finalise the Vice-President appointment process, subject to nomination(s) and election, by the VFF Annual General Meeting scheduled for 26th February 2019.
