Mr Will Roberts to establish WoolPoll Panel

Feb '09
Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has appointed Mr Will Roberts as Chairman of the 2009 WoolPoll Panel.

Mr Roberts was a member of the previous WoolPoll panel and is the Chairman of the Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders.

His first task will be to establish an independent WoolPoll Panel comprising representatives of organisations across industry as well as a representative from the Australian Government and from AWI.

He said it was clear the industry was being affected by the global economic downturn and it was essential woolgrowers had the necessary information to make this year's WoolPoll decision.

“The role AWI plays in the industry is an important one,” Mr Roberts said.

“I intend to make sure that woolgrowers are able to cast their votes based on a comprehensive understanding of what AWI means to them.”

He said he looked forward to working with stakeholders to ensure that WoolPoll 2009 is well managed and provides the best outcome for the industry.

Wool levy funds are invested by AWI in research, development, innovation and marketing aimed at improving long-term profitability for Australian woolgrowers.

Under the Wool Services Privatisation Act 2000, AWI is required to conduct a poll of woolgrower levy payers (WoolPoll) every three years. The previous WoolPoll was held in 2006.

Woolgrowers who have paid $100 or more in wool sales levy in the three years to 30 June 2009 will be eligible to vote in WoolPoll 2009.

WoolPoll packs will be sent to eligible growers in late September and the WoolPoll 2009 voting return date will be 6 November.
