AgForce Committees

The AgForce Queensland Farmers Board sets the policy direction for the organisation and identifies its agenda of priority policy areas every two years. These priorities strategically target the issues thought to be most important to Queensland broadacre agriculture.

The priority policy areas are resourced with dedicated policy development Committees made up of skilled and passionate members with experience in the relevant policy area. The Chair and members are selected through an open nomination process from within the membership. Being a committee member is an exciting opportunity to help steer the future direction of the broadacre agriculture industries in Queensland.

These Committees consider current and emerging issues and member resolutions and provide advice on policy matters to the Board, which has ultimate responsibility for policy positioning and are accountable to the membership.

The current priority policy theme areas and Committees are:

Enabling infrastructure
  • Transport Committee
  • Telecommunications Committee
Securing our property rights
  • Resources sector interactions Committee
  • Vegetation management Committee
  • Water Planning and Regulation Committee
Profitably Managing our resources/Best Practice 
  • Finance, Agribusiness, Climate, Drought Committee
  • Biosecurity
               o    Weeds Committee
               o    Wild Dog Sub-Committee

There are a range of other important issues that affect broadacre industry and these are dealt with and resourced as required in response to developments and as opportunities present. For example, AgForce also has a standing Reference Group that addresses Great Barrier Reef related issues.
