There are eight scholarships available for 2017/18 – each valued at up to $10,000 – through the Sheepmeat Council of Australia and Meat & Livestock Australia joint initiative, ‘Building Leadership Capability for the Sheep Industry’.
The initiative’s objective is to ensure the Australian sheep industry attracts and retains people with leadership skills to contribute to the long-term viability of the industry by developing industry capability and capacity.
The governance scholarship is for producers to complete the Company Directors Course through the Australian Institute of Company Directors. It includes all course fees and one year of AICD membership (paid direct to the AICD), travel to the course and accommodation and meals during the course.
The course is a five-day intensive program for board directors, aspiring directors or executives and focuses on the roles, responsibilities and skills required by directors and boards.
Sheepmeat Council of Australia CEO Kat Giles said the Council is committed to ensuring the next generation of sheep producers is equipped to take on positions of leadership in the organisation.
“Strong corporate governance and board leadership skills are crucial to the future of the Australian sheep industry and the AICD Course is a great program to learn the skills important to SCA,” she said.
