NGIA Extraordinary General Meeting
NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS OF NGIA
Notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Nursery & Garden Industry Australia Limited (NGIA) to be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday 12 June 2019. The EGM documentation will be provided to Members electronically by email and sent by post.
The EGM is being convened by the NGIA Board for Members to vote on the establishment of Greenlife Industry Australia and the voluntary liquidation of NGIA.
The NGI Network of organisations (NGIA, NGINA, NGIQ, NGISA, NGIT, NGIV and NGIWA) have conducted a three year assessment of the industry structure including, conducting an independent Member Survey, two Member-led reviews and an independent consultants report to determine the most effective and efficient structure for the industry to lead it through its next period of operation .
Consensus was reached by the NGIA Board, State NGI Presidents and invited State Directors in November 2018 to support a reinvention of NGIA and form a new national peak body; where both businesses and state associations could be in direct membership; with the priorities of developing markets, reducing costs and protecting investments.
Following the meeting, a Transition Team of Members was formed to deliver an Information Memorandum (IM) for Members nationally to consider by June 2019. The Transition Team also developed the proposed constitution for Greenlife Industry Australia.
The IM contains important information about the proposed new peak body including the purpose of the organisation, board composition and membership structures. The document also addresses important relationships for Greenlife Industry Australia and has been comprehensively reviewed by legal and financial professionals.
Both the IM and the proposed constitution are available for review online at www.nationalreinventionproject.com.au.
Yours sincerelyPeter Vaughan
Chief Executive Officer
