Jul '08
New Directions - Women in a Climate of Change, is the theme for Wincott 2008 AGM to be held at the 2008 Australian Cotton Conference at the Gold Coast, and is in keeping with the theme of this year's conference.

There are many opportunities out there for Agricultural Women to seek new directions, whether by looking for opportunities on-farm or off-farm & outside the farm gate.

This years guest speakers are Leith Boully, who will discuss the issue of Climate Change & Barb Grey, who will discuss winning the 2007 Innovative Grower of the Year Award.

Both women will discuss the opportunity that is the Australian Rural Leadership Program, to inspiration for attendees to look outside the square when looking for opportunities for personal growth or business direction.

Attendees will also briefly hear from sponsors AustSafe & Grant Thornton who are also sponsors of Wincott's Trade Display at the Conference.

ANZ will present prizes to the winners of the annual Wincott Photographic Competition, all entries of which will be on display over the 3 days. Entry forms can be found at the website.

A brief AGM will precede the speakers. Those interested in standing for nomination to the committee are asked to visit the website for details.

A Special Resolution will also be held to change the name of Wincott to be more inclusive for all involved in the Cotton Industry, and are currently looking at “Wincott – People in Cotton”.

Wincott” stands for Women's Industry Network - Cotton. It is an organisation that aims to provide support, information and resources to encourage and empower women in the cotton industry to attain skills, confidence and to have an informed “voice” in the agricultural sector.
