Committee membership EOIs

Page last updated: Wednesday, 6 March 2019 - 4:35pm

Expressions of interest for membership to the three Industry Funding Scheme (IFS) management committees are now open. WA producers and others involved in the dairy, grain/seed, hay, sheep or goat industries or supply chains are encouraged to apply.

The Western Australian Government is committed to ensuring diversity on Government boards and committees, and in particular, increasing the representation of women to 50 per cent by 2019. Applications are therefore encouraged from women, as well as people from culturally diverse backgrounds, such as Aboriginal people and the Vietnamese community, and young professionals and farmers.

The IFS management committees oversee the IFSs. The schemes use authorised funding arrangements for producers to raise funds to address priority pest and diseases at a whole-of-industry level.

From 1 July 2019, there will be the following vacancies to fill:

  • Cattle IFS – 6 vacancies
  • Grains, Seeds and Hay IFS – 5 vacancies
  • Sheep and Goat IFS – 4 vacancies

Expressions of interest can be made online at:

WA 6401
