Woolgrower representative voted on AWI’s Board Nomination Committee

Friday, 26 July 2019

The independent process to appoint an industry representative on Australian Wool Innovation’s (AWI) board nomination committee has been conducted with Simon Cameron, a Tasmanian woolgrower, endorsed by the Woolgrower Industry Consultation Panel (WICP) in the formal nomination process to the position.

The meeting, chaired by WICP independent chair Mr Ron Cullen and attended by the AWI WICP members each with equal voting rights, signals a new approach for AWI’s board nomination committee and board nomination process reflecting the recommendations in the Ernst & Young 2018 Review of Performance (ROP).

The process of appointing, by consensus, an industry representation on AWI’s board nomination committee is independent of the AWI Board and reflects the highest governance standards.
