Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) is calling for remits to next year’s annual meeting, being held on Tuesday 10 March in the Southern South Island electorate.
Livestock farmers who want to propose written remits are invited to submit them by 7 January 2015.
Written remits need to be submitted on the official form that can be obtained from B+LNZ general counsel, Mark Dunlop, by freephoning 0800 233 352.
Remits that, if passed at B+LNZ’s annual meeting would not be binding, require the signatures of 10 farmers who are registered on the B+LNZ electoral roll, Dunlop said.
Remits that, if passed at the annual meeting, would be binding, require the signatures of at least 1,000 registered farmers or five percent of the total number of registered farmers (18,391 at 21 November 2014) – whichever is the lesser, he said.
Remits will be included with voting documents for the annual meeting, to be sent to farmers in February 2015.
