Our Board has 9 directors — six farmer-elected directors and three independently appointed directors. Directors serve terms of three years each.
Our Board is predominantly responsible for managing, directing and supervising the company, unless our Constitution or the Companies Act require those powers to be exercised by shareholders or others.
Back row: Sophie Haslem, Ben Dickie, Gray Baldwin, Alison Watters

Farmer-elected directors must be shareholders of LIC. They are elected by shareholders to represent one of the two regions– North Island and South Island.
Elections are held at our annual meeting each year.
Appointed directors are selected to ensure our Board has the appropriate skills and competencies to lead our organisation effectively. The perspectives and experience they bring to the Board complement the industry knowledge and other expertise provided by your farmer elected directors.
The Board will recommend candidates that have been shortlisted through a Director Search and Selection Advisor.
