Forest Growers Levy Trust Inc. - Election of Board
Voting closes at 5.00pm on 20 October 2017.
Votes received after this deadline will not be accepted.
For information on voting and the definition of who may vote in the Forest Growers Levy Trust Board Election see:
Anyone who potentially will pay the levy during the six year life of the current Levy Order (2014 – 2019) will be entitled to vote. There is one vote per forest owner regardless of the form of that ownership or the number of forests held by that owner. A qualifying forest is a forest that has a Stand or Stands of trees of 10 years or more in age (or, for the purposes of this election, planted before 1 October 2007) totalling at least four hectares in area and no more than 1000 hectares. Forest owners who will not be liable to pay the levy will not be eligible to vote.
Eligible plantation forest owners having less than 1,000 hectares of plantation forest may vote for one Board Member. An owner’s vote for each nominee shall be counted as one vote per forest owner per Board vacancy.
NB: There will be no election for representatives of owners of larger forests (i.e. greater than 1,000 hectares) as the number of candidates matched the number of vacancies on the board.
A separate form should be used for each voting forest owner/levy payer. Only one voting form may be completed for each voting forest owner/levy payer.
