Applications are now open for the Australian Institute of Company Directors course, sponsored by Cattle Council of Australia and Meat and Livestock Australia.
Cattle Council and MLA are sponsoring the course to provide the opportunity for grassfed beef producers to develop their skills in corporate governance, for the second year in a row.
2016 AICD participant and previous Rising Champion state finalist, Geoff Birchnell, said he unreservedly recommended all producers apply for the course.
“The skills, knowledge and contacts gained through completing the AICD course will place you at the forefront of opportunities in the Australian beef industry,” Mr Birchnell said.
“Our industry is rapidly evolving and it is critical that we have skilled people to navigate the path forward,” he said.
He said farming today transcends the paddock and many important decisions regarding the industry are made at the boardroom table.
Applications close midnight January 29.
