Published 16 December 15

First Milk members overwhelmingly approved the new governance structure at a Special General Meeting yesterday (15 December).

The new Board will consist of three non-executive directors, two farmer directors and two executive directors. The new Council will consist of seven elected farmer members and an independent chair.

To manage the transition, a new nominations committee has been formed, which will oversee the selection process of potential candidates and make recommendations to the transitional Board and Council.
