Nominations now open for representation on GIWA’s five commodity Councils.
The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) is calling for nominations for each of its’ the five commodity Councils, with successful nominations to be announced at the GIWA Annual General Meeting to be held Wednesday, 6th October 2021.
Peter Nash, recently appointed Executive Officer for GIWA said, “GIWA plays a major part in the WA grain industry by facilitating communication, information exchange, capacity building and grain supply chain solutions for the whole grain value chain. GIWA delivers many of its industry-good functions through its five commodity Councils, with separate commodity Councils representing the barley, oat, oilseeds, pulse and wheat industries.
The GIWA commodity Councils address issues that arise regularly such as grain market access, variety classification and rationalization and receival standards, as well as other issues, such as the current labour shortage that threatens to make the coming harvest very challenging for growers and bulk handlers, as and when they arise. I therefore encourage anyone in the grain industry that wants to play an active role in addressing these and other issues on behalf of the whole grain industry, to nominate for a position on one of GIWA's commodity Councils."
Peter Nash has over 35 years’ experience in agriculture and environment management, working in a variety of roles in both government, commercial and private sectors. Peter has an extensive and diverse career and will use his experience to take GIWA through the next stage here in Western Australia.
Nominations for GIWA Council positions close on Tuesday 21st September 2021. GIWA asks individuals in the wider industry consider their interest and visit GIWA Councils to download a nomination form and find out more.
