Growers' Advisory Council

Group of people

The Growers' Advisory Council is comprised of Western Australian grain growers who have a genuine desire and commitment to see CBH continue to develop into Australia's leading grain business. It supports CBH in a range of areas, including:

  • The provision of a formal mechanism for issues raised by growers to be fed back to CBH.
  • Acting as a grower advocacy group so that CBH can better communicate with growers.
  • Considering issues of a strategic nature to the industry.
  • Making appropriate comments and recommendations to CBH Board and management on issues impacting on growers.
GAC members are provided with opportunities to enhance their professional development through training, education and information during their time on the Council, making it an excellent opportunity to contribute to the future of your co-operative while enhancing your own professional development.

How to apply

Councillors are appointed for a four-year term, selected by a panel represented by CBH Directors, GAC Councillors and the CBH management team.

The 16 grower councillors meet four times a year in Perth with reasonable accommodation and travel expenses to attend Council meetings paid for by CBH.
