MIG Probes

MIG Structure

As a grower-driven organisation, MIG needs to maintain strong links with its members. The Board plays a key role in determining the direction MIG to ensure it understands and meets members’ needs.

Current Board Members

Chair: Craig Forsyth, Irwin

Secretary: Cliff Harding, Arrino

Members

  • Braden Bagley, Yandanooka
  • Ian Broad, Casuarinas
  • Tim Dempster, Arrowsmith
  • Ben McTaggart, North Mingenew
  • Helen Newton, North East Mingenew
  • Brendan Rowe, Mullewa
  • Ian Thomas, East Mingenew / Yandanooka

The nine members are elected for a three year term by the MIG members, with three rotating through each year. This ensures a good mix of experienced and new board members sitting on the board at any one time.

MIG operates through its Research & Development Division and its Environmental Division. The division committees meet on a regular basis with project staff to provide feedback on progress, develop new themes and ideas for new projects and make sure that the growers are maintaining ownership of the growth and direction of their group.
