The membership of the National Farmers' Federation (NFF) has elected a number of new Directors and voted to change the tenure of Board members at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Canberra today.
The role of President was uncontested with Fiona Simson returning for a second term.
Victorian Farmers Federation President and mixed farmer David Jochinke was elected to the position of Vice President.
Three new Board Directors were elected: Agforce Director and cattle producer Robyn Bryant, Dried Fruits President Mark King and NSW Farmers President and mixed farmer Derek Schoen.
Chair of Grain Growers Limited and New South Wales grower John Eastburn and NSW Farmers Executive Councillor and cattle producer Tony Hegarty were elected for a further term.
The newly-elected Directors join independent Directors David Carr and Andrea Koch, who were appointed to the Board in August 2017.
At the AGM, members also voted in favour of constitutional changes that will see Director terms changed from one year to three, with a maximum of two terms able to be served.
