GrainGrowers' Priority Themes
Growers shape our policy positions
Australian growers are welcome to provide input into policy at any time, via email, phone, or contact with their local Grower Engagement Officer or National Policy Group representative. GrainGrowers members can give feedback on issues via Annual Policy Survey and micro surveys.
GrainGrowers engages with growers in many ways to ensure key issues are captured. GrainGrowers works hard to keep members updated on policy outcomes and align policy with activities and events that benefit growers.
The National Policy Group (NPG) is made up of 15 grower representatives from around Australia. The NPG meets several times per year and provides input into GrainGrowers’ policy positions.
Developing policy at GrainGrowers is about being proactive and responsive to issues that have a direct impact on growers. Our process includes opportunities for direct input from individual producers via our annual surveys, events and membership.
