NPA outlines five reasons to vote before election deadline

The deadline for voting in the NPA elections is looming. The polls close on Friday, meaning members now have just five days to vote.

With time days rapidly running out, the NPA has outlined five reasons why NPA members should cast their vote by midday on Friday, February 23, if they haven’t done so already.

  1. The NPA was formed in the late ‘90s for the sole purpose of giving the pig industry a voice in its darkest hour. It was built on democracy – use it by using your vote!
  2. 31 people from across the pig industry have been brave enough to stand up and offer their time and services for three years on either Producer Group or the Allied Industry Group – for the greater good of the industry. The very least they deserve is your vote. To read all about the candidates, click here (PG) and here (AIG).
  3. As far as NPA elections go, the stakes have never been higher. The next three years will see decisions made that will shape the future of this industry for ever. If ever an election mattered, it’s now. You have the chance to choose who takes the industry forward at this vital time.
  4. The way the NPA elections work means you have ample scope to vote for the candidates who best reflect your views and interests. There’s a summary of the rules here (remember one membership = one vote!).
  5. It’s dead easy. Click here to vote online. Anyone who hasn’t vote online yet, should also have the postal option if you prefer.
