Know Your Cooperative Seminar

Following feedback from shareholders, we are piloting a ‘Know Your Co-operative’ seminar to provide some of our shareholders with an opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of Alliance.

We hope those who attend will feel better informed about the co-operative and be able to share their knowledge with other farmers. The seminar should also appeal to those shareholders that may be looking to contribute to Alliance as a director in the future.

The seminar from 3rd-5th July in Christchurch will be limited to a maximum of 10 people to ensure a quality experience for participants. If the pilot is well supported, we will run more in the future.

Given the aim of the seminar, preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate their desire to positively influence our co-operative into the future. Successful applicants are likely to be involved in, or aspire to, leadership roles in their community.

We are looking for a diverse group who will not only benefit from the seminar, but will also provide thought-provoking challenges to other participants and the Alliance team.

While we appreciate this seminar won’t appeal to every shareholder, if you do know someone who may be interested, please encourage them to apply. Alliance will cover the costs of the seminar including meals and accommodation. Successful applicants will be required to fund their own travel.

Applicants must be Platinum or Gold shareholders either directly or by way of a beneficial interest in a shareholding entity. In the event that more applications are received than the places available, the Board’s Remuneration Committee will decide the successful applicants.

Applications for this seminar closed 12 noon, 15th May 2019.
