Every three years, CANEGROWERS holds elections. Every eligible member can nominate for the Board of their local organisation and every member can vote.
Between 28 January and 18 February 2019, you have the opportunity to nominate. Taking the step to stand for your local Board can lead to a position on the CANEGROWERS Policy Council and the Queensland Cane Growers Organisation Board.
As an elected representative, you are in the front seat to contribute to the activities and direction of your organisation and your industry. It is a rewarding and challenging role.
CANEGROWERS encourages men and women of all ages to put their names forward. Each district CANEGROWERS election is a democratic process which seeks to have the best candidates representing their fellow cane growers.
