The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) is excited to open nominations for its newly formed policy committees; Farming Systems, Infrastructure and Transport, and Workforce and Social Infrastructure.
VFF Returning Officer, Jane Lovell said that the new committees had been formed to improve the organisation’s ability to respond to the issues that matter most to farmers.
“These committees are going to advise on issues such as animal welfare, biosecurity, roads, fuel security and labour,” Ms Lovell said.
Ms Lovell said this was an excellent opportunity for VFF members to be involved in shaping government policy both in Victoria and federally.
“We are asking members to put their hands up to contribute to VFF policy development and help to shape the future on topics such as animal welfare policy in Victoria or help to solve the devastating labour issues facing the agricultural industry.”
Nominations for the positions of members and chair of the committees open on 9 September and close at 5:00pm 7 October 2021.
More information about the committees and nomination forms can be found on the VFF website.
