Proposal to Revise the Constitution
In 2016 the Board set about a review of itself and the Constitution. The results will be presented at the 2017 AGM on 24 May.
In essence, the Board recommends to members that its numbers be cut to five of whom at least three should be practising farmers.
The Board recognises that our membership is wider than when we were established largely for cropping farmers, and the proposed changes expand the focus to all land based production and more clearly identifies the technology sectors that support it.
The description and classes of membership have also been amended to reflect what is effectively happening.
A number of Constitution changes are required to formally change the Board size and structure and Membership, and the opportunity was taken to tidy up some other minor aspects. These will be put to the AGM.
