New Strategic Advisory Group has first meeting

The GGA recently held it’s 17th Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) meeting. This meeting was the first for five new appointments to the group, after a number of long standing members finished their terms earlier this year. New appointees to the SAG include GRDC representative Julia Easton, extension consultant Danielle England, CSIRO researcher Yvette Oliver, DAFWA representative David Ferris and Grower Group Executive Officer Anne Wilkins.

The SAG’s role is to:

  • provide high level industry feedback on agricultural industry trends, needs and issues in order to guide the strategic direction of the GGA
  • Offer independent advice from a variety of viewpoints to the Project Leader on formulating the GGA’s responses to strategic issues
  • Establish policy in relation to external and internal partnerships of the GGA
  • Monitor the achievement of project objectives
  • Raise the profile of the GGA in the industry and wider community.
