CBH Group announces governance review and District 4 by-election


5 June 2020


The CBH Group will commence a review of the co-operative’s governance structure to establish a strong framework for the future.

CBH Chair Simon Stead said the review would also look externally to assess best practice from co-operatives and mutuals.

“In recent weeks and months, CBH’s governance structure has been the subject of many conversations with our members,” Mr Stead said.

“Members’ views are welcomed by the Board and to ensure we make considered decisions that capture the broad views of our grower members, we have made the decision to commence a review of our governance framework and processes.

“Our goal is to look to the future of CBH’s governance so that we can continue our legacy of the past 87 years of creating and returning value to Western Australian growers.”

It is intended for the governance review to be completed prior to the next Annual General Meeting.

District 4 by-election

With the departure of two Directors from District 4 there are currently two casual vacancies on the Board.

To ensure all grower districts are represented, the Board has decided to hold a by-election for District 4 as soon as possible that will elect one Director for a term through to February 2022.

A decision on the second vacancy will be made at the finalisation of the governance review, prior to the 2021 Annual General Meeting.

The District 4 by-election will open for nominations next Wednesday 10 June and close at 12.00pm on Wednesday 24 June. Ballot papers will be mailed to grower members in District 4 on Tuesday 30 June. Voting will close at 10.00am on Friday 7 August.
