As a not-for-profit organisation Beef Australia relies heavily on the personal involvement of the great people in our beef industry community.
It is only through the support of volunteers that we have eight producer-led committees driving the development of the Beef Australia 2015 program in key areas including education, international engagement and our three big cattle competitions.
Of course, not everyone is in a position to take on such an active role in the event, but there are other ways to be involved in Beef Australia 2015 – producers, their families and rural business can show their support for the event by becoming official members of our organisation.
We have recently reviewed our individual, family and corporate membership packages, with new deals now available covering the next three years.
As well as voting rights at the Beef Australia AGM, members receive priority access to ticket sales for special events and functions, and a 20 per cent discount on official event merchandise.
Members also receive a five-day admission pass to Beef Australia 2015; access to the International Lounge; a Beef Australia member pin and special product discounts during the expo at participating trade fair displays and food and beverage outlets.
And to further grow our membership base, we’re offering an incentive to current members with a new ‘Member Get Member’ competition. Members who introduce a new joining member between before 1 December 2014, will go into the draw to win four tickets to the Beef Australia 2015 Gala Ball – I can personally guarantee that there will be no hotter ticket in town that night!
This is a great way for beef producers to take a more active interest in their industry’s national exposition and I strongly encourage Queensland Country Life readers to take advantage of this opportunity.
