Horticulture Innovation Australia has five director roles opening up on its board, and it is calling for applications from growers and others with an interest in the future of the nation’s horticulture industry.
The not-for-profit organisation is charged with investing more than $100 million in research and development and marketing programs annually and is funded by levies, Federal Government and external co-investment funds.
This year, the organisation’s constitution requires that five directors retire from the board.
Horticulture Innovation Australia deputy chairman and chair of the 2016 Director Nomination Committee Mark Napper said the call for directors was about encouraging growers and the wider Australian horticulture industry to be involved in the future direction of the organisation.
