Dear Ms Heaney
We are pleased to advise that Federation of Australian Wool Organisations has been nominated for a 2014 Australian Biosecurity Award.
The Australian Biosecurity Awards recognise individuals and organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to maintaining Australia's biosecurity integrity across the continuum – offshore, at the border and onshore.
Federation of Australian Wool Organisations has been nominated by Department of Agriculture officers, Ms Desley Darby and Dr John Stratton. Federation of Australian Wool Organisations is recognised for its forward planning and leadership amongst industry partners to enhance emergency animal disease and Foot-and-Mouth Disease preparedness as a national priority, particularly throughout 2012–13.
Nominations for the 2014 Australian Biosecurity Awards will be assessed by a selection panel, comprised of departmental executives. Should Federation of Australian Wool Organisations be deemed a winner of an Australian Biosecurity Award, a representative of the company will be invited to attend the awards ceremony, to be held in Canberra at the ABARES Outlook conference dinner on Tuesday, March 4 2014.
The Department of Agriculture will publicly celebrate the achievements of all organisations nominated for an Australian Biosecurity Award through a media release and correspondence to industry.
Congratulations again on your nomination,
