NFUS presidential team to remain unchanged

NFU Scotland’s officeholder team will remain the same for another year, with all three members staying in post.

The role of president, currently held by Nigel Miller (pictured), is open for election every two years. Mr Miller was re-elected in February and will stand down at the 2015 AGM.

However, the two vice-presidential posts at NFUS are both for one-year terms only.

The union has confirmed the current vice-presidents, Allan Bowie and Rob Livesey have both been nominated, with no other candidates coming forward.

Mr Bowie has been in post since February 2009, while Mr Livesey was elected at the AGM in February 2013.

Although there will be no voting, the formalities of having candidates proposed, seconded and elected will take place at the union’s council meeting on 11 February.

NFU Scotland chief executive Scott Walker said: “Having a tried and trusted presidential team going into one of the most challenging years for the Scottish farming industry will be reassuring for members.

“Nigel, Allan and Rob have a proven track record in dealing with the growing list of challenges thrown at them in 2013. This is a team with the skills and knowledge to continue to meet those challenges on behalf of our members.”
