Know Your Co-operative
Know your co-operative
In 2019, following feedback from shareholders, we held our first ‘Know Your Co-operative’ seminar. The initiative gave 11 shareholders the opportunity to gain a more in-depth understanding of Alliance Group. You can read more about their experience here.
Following the success of the first programme, we are pleased to announce that we will be holding another ‘Know Your Co-operative’ seminar in Christchurch on 4-6 May 2021. The seminar will be limited to a maximum of 12 people to ensure a quality experience for participants.
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.
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 will not 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. If more applications are received than we have places available, the Board’s People Committee will decide the successful applicants.
Applications for this seminar close on 5 March 2021. The application form can be found here.
