NPA Elections 2024!
In January and February, NPA members will vote to elect a streamlined NPA Pig Industry Group (PIG) - and nominations are now open!
The new group will be made up of eight producer members and four allied industry members.
“The PIG is a brilliant mix of producers and the allied industry, and to make sure we move the industry forward, we need the best people to put their heads above the parapet for election.”
NPA chair Rob Mutimer
“Elections for the PIG are just round the corner. If you want to be in the thick of policy making for the industry - now's your chance. We need the best to keep the NPA the best!”
NPA vice-chair Hugh Crabtree

ELECTING A STREAMLINED PIG
The NPA board has agreed to streamline PIG.
- The NPA is seeking candidates for eight producer and four allied member seats on PIG.
- Producers will be elected on the basis of the most votes received, rather than on a regional basis.
- Efforts will be made to ensure a balance between indoor and outdoor production and independent and corporate producers.
- Allied members will be elected via most votes in four categories – buildings/equipment, health, marketing/processing and nutrition.
- Producers will only vote for producers, and allied industry for allied industry, with one vote per membership.
