The Rules of the AMVA dictate that the members, grouped by Milk Processor, shall elect from their number, delegates to the Association Convention every four years. As part of this process, the Executive Committee determines the number of delegates so as to provide representation for all groups.
Following changes in the Processor ranks over the last four years it has been necessary to up-date our electoral areas. The revised structure consists of President and 18 Electorates with the new Executive Committee comprising the President and five members each representing a Processor group. The description of these new areas is shown below.
The timetable for the election is:
Note: Times are Daylight Saving Time (Sydney local time).
Two nomination forms will be posted to members – the white form is to be used to nominate for Convention Delegate and the yellow form is to be used to nominate for President. Members are invited to consider standing or nominating someone from their electorate either as a Convention Delegate or President.
Members elect Convention Delegates from their own electorate whereas the President is elected by all
members. Electorate details will be printed on the Delegate Nomination Form.
The result of the ballot will not become official until formalised by the current Executive members at the conclusion of
the election. The formalisation process is proposed to take place on Wed 20 Feb 2013.
As from the 2013 Election the new Executive Committee will consist of six members, the President plus one from each of the five current processor groups. Current Executive members are listed for reference purposes only.
The up-dated electorates give us the following expanded AMVA structure. Current Delegates are listed for reference purposes.
