Time running out for NPA election nominations

4th Jan 2018 / By Alistair Driver

There is still time to get your nomination in to stand in the NPA elections - but you will need to be quick. 

Nominations close next Monday, January 8. 

A total of 24 candidates for the Producer Group (PG) and Allied Industry Group (AIG) elections have had their nominations confirmed so far.

Since Christmas, two new candidates from the eastern region – Colin Stone and Simon Guise – have thrown their hats into the ring for the PG elections.

This means there are now 11 candidates for the poll to elect the new 12-strong PG, with more expected to declare soon once their nominations have been validated. The AIG still has its nose in front with 13 candidates standing so far, to be whittled down to 10 for the next three-year term.

The dedicated NPA election website also includes full election rules, plus the manifestos of the 24 candidates confirmed so far and a detailed history of the NPA, highlighting why producer representation matters so much to this industry.  

Online voting begins on January 22.
