Management Committee

The management committee of Passionfruit Australia is made up of members from all areas within the passionfruit industry, including growers and supply chain members.

Management committee members, including the President and Vice President are elected by vote at the annual general meeting.

The management committee meets up to four times a year. Face-to-face meetings are held twice a year where required and teleconference meetings are used to ensure regular association business is handled in the intervening times.

Positions on the management committee are occupied in a volunteer capacity which means that expenses like phone or travel costs are not covered by Passionfruit Australia, except where the expense is directly related to a project being funded by strategic levy investment under the Hort Innovation Passionfruit Fund. This demonstrates that the people on the management committee are solely dedicated to the development of the passionfruit industry for the benefit of all growers.

All stakeholders in the passionfruit supply chain are invited to get involved – both as members of Passionfruit Australia and as members of Hort Innovation. Hort Innovation is the grower-owned,
not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
