*The eight members are elected for a three year term by the MIG members, with three rotating through each year. This ensures a good mix of experienced and new board members sitting on the board at any one time.
MIG operates through its Research & Development Division and its Environmental Division.
The division committees meet on a regular basis with project staff to provide feedback on progress, develop new themes and ideas for new projects and make sure that the growers are maintaining ownership of the growth and direction of their group.
