2021 WoolPoll Panel

Under the Wool Services Privatisation (Wool Levy Poll) Regulations 2003 (“the Regulations”), AWI must form an industry Panel comprising eligible levy payer representatives to confirm that the draft forms and the process for conducting the ballot have been examined and assessed as appropriate.

 The purpose of the WoolPoll Panel is to:

  • Meet the statutory obligations set out in the Regulations.
  • Oversee enhanced processes for delivery of WoolPoll with regard to the findings and recommendations from the WoolPoll Review 2020 in order to encourage all eligible wool levy payers to have their say and vote.

 The role of the WoolPoll Panel is to:

  • Oversee development of the WoolPoll communications strategy.
  • Approve the Voter Information Kit.
  •  Approve the poll process.
  •  Deliver the final report on the operation of WoolPoll to AWI and Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE).

Message from the Panel Chair to woolgrowers

As Panel Chair I welcome you to this information booklet on WoolPoll 2021. I highly value the process of Australian woolgrowing businesses to collectively set the levy rate, providing the future funding for our industry.

The WoolPoll panel with its wealth of skills and experience, has worked closely with AWI to create this document that will provide your wool-growing business with the relevant information and links to assist when selecting your voting preference.

Your levy choice will help determine the level of investment within key areas such as market development, on-farm research, education and training.

Your Wool. Your Business. Our Industry.
