All South Australian grain growers are welcome to be members of GPSA. Membership is free for growers who make contributions under the Primary Industries Funding Scheme.
GPSA uses contributions to provide services in the best interests of growers. For transparency, GPSA has an Audit and Finance Committee which regularly meets to scrutinise GPSA’s finances and ensure it is spending contributions responsibly. The committee is currently chaired by David Malpas.
As a company limited by guarantee, GPSA lodges financial statements and reports annually with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
GPSA policy work is funded by grain producers through contributions made under the Primary Industries Funding Scheme. GPSA operates a range of policy and project work on behalf of growers under the plan. The South Australian Minister for Agriculture released the first PIFS Grain Management Plan in 2012, which is reviewed annually. The document provides guidance on how the funds can be spent. GPSA submits a report to the Minister annually regarding progress against its objectives.
The GPSA Board has established by-laws concerning membership and the election process.
