The VFITB AGM was held on the 8th of October at the Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union office in Lygon St. It was announced that Collin Ross would take over the role as Chair of the Executive Committee and Alan Maguire would become Deputy Chair. Tom Hale and Michael Hedley will continue serving as Executive Committee members.
The organisation reported another strong year, both in achieving outcomes for the food processing industry and in its financial performance. Outgoing Chair, Michael Hedley identified the quality of the VFITB’s ‘Skill Needs Report’ and the number of additional projects undertaken as features of the year. He also thanked Lynne Stockdale, who has recently left the organisation, for her fine work and welcomed Linda Baron as the new Program Manager.
