Member voting changes to suit all preferences

If you’re an FMG member, we’re making it easier for you to have your say at this year’s AGM, by introducing an online proxy voting option, in addition to the postal option.

We’re seeing more of you choose to interact with us digitally and online proxy voting is another way we’re catering to those of you who want to engage with us in that way.

Electionsnz will be managing this process on behalf of FMG. The company is well known across the rural sector and are independently audited and certified to conduct this process.

If you currently receive your renewal statement and FMG Post via email, this year you’ll receive your AGM voting material via email. This will include a unique, secure pin and a link through to a web page (unique to FMG) where you can cast your proxy vote. Also included in this web page is the Notice of AGM and Board member candidate profiles.

If you receive paper statements and FMG Post in the mail, then you’ll receive your voting information in the mail. This too will include the Notice of AGM, Board member candidate profiles and a unique, secure pin. If you choose to, you can proxy vote online in the same way as detailed above. If you’d prefer to proxy vote on paper and send this via post or scan and email it, these options are also available. A return envelope will be included in each voting pack.

You can also vote in person at this year's AGM, which will be held at Trustpower Baypark Suites, 81 Truman Lane, Mount Maunganui on Friday, 20 August 2021. The AGM starts at 10.30am.
