Initially established in 1995 as Australian Almond Growers’ Association (AAGA), the association was re-structured and renamed in 2002 as the Almond Board of Australia (ABA), reflecting a broader charter and membership base.
The role of the Board is to ensure that the ABA has clear strategic direction and strong oversight on the journey to achieve our strategic objectives.
The ABA Board comprises four marketer representative positions and six grower representative positions: two representatives from both Riverland and Sunraysia regions and one representative from each of the Adelaide and Riverina regions. Directors are elected by the Grower Members of the ABA for a two-year term.
The ABA Board meets on a quarterly basis to oversee the management and performance of the organisation. The Board represents the national interests of the industry, providing strategic direction and overseeing the investments of the ABA.
About our committees
The Almond Board of Australia hosts a number of committees made up of members from across the horticultural, scientific and almond communities. Each committee has been created to concentrate some of the best minds in the business in key work areas.
Our committees are an important part of the ABA’s governance structure. These committees provide insight and discussion about our programs, meeting regularly to discuss issues and opportunities and to assist in producing programs and material that will provide practical, expert assistance to our industry.
