THE NATION'S HORTICULTURE Research and Development Corporation, Hort Innovation, is on the lookout for three new directors to join its board.
As part of the company’s constitution, one-third of board members must retire due to their length of time in office but may reapply if eligible.
All director nominees require experience in finance and risk, governance and compliance, and strategy and business management, plus various other practical skills.
When the application period closes, applications will be provided to the Hort Innovation Director Nomination Committee.
The four-person committee is made up of a representative from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, a levy payer representative, an independent eminent member, and a current Director of the Hort Innovation Board.
The Director Nomination Committee will meet to determine a shortlist of candidates from the application pool for interviewing during August 2021.
The final Director candidates will be announced ahead of the November Annual General Meeting and instated at the event.
