Every three years AWI is required to conduct a poll, asking levy payers to determine the levy rate to be paid for industry R&D and Marketing (RD&M) activities for the next three years.
The poll is run in accordance with the Wool Services Privatisation (Wool Levy Poll) Regulations 2003 and is overseen by an independent panel of woolgrowers – the WoolPoll Panel.
AWI’s operations and activities for the following three years are then driven by the WoolPoll outcome, which will be reflected in AWI’s 2016/17 to 2018/19 Strategic Plan.
WoolPoll is the levy payers’ opportunity to directly influence the future funding of AWI.
Every Australian woolgrower who has paid wool levies totalling $100 or more in the past three financial years is an eligible levy payer entitled to vote at WoolPoll. If you have not received your voting entitlement letter by 31 August, please call 1800 113 373.
