DFMC Ward Representative Advisory Council

The Ward Representative Advisory Council (WRAC) is a consultative panel made up of fourteen DFMC members. They act as a sounding board to help drive the co-operative forward.

Among their duties, they meet at twice-yearly workshops, to consider issues on policy and strategy presented to them by the DFMC Board. Additionally, they consult with the board on regional issues and ideas from members throughout the year.

This two-way, consultative approach underscores a key foundation of the co-operative.

WRAC appointments run for two years, after which all tenures are dissolved to make way for the selection of new council members, as a spill and fill motion, per WRAC Member guidelines.

WRAC Members come from each of the five wards where DFMC grows milk – Far North Queensland, South East Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria/Riverina and South Australia.
