Since the appointment of PIEFA’ s new CEO Luciano Mesiti several meetings have taken place to establish a strong working relationship and form a working MOUWe are pleased to announce both PIEFA & ASA Boards have unanimously approved the MOU.  

The primary objectives are to establish a commitment by both parties to work together to build the capacity of Agricultural Shows Australia and primary industries through: 

  • Workshops/webinars/AgShow exhibits or equivalent to provide accredited teacher professional development which will also enable industry to engage directly with teachers; 
  • Implementation of Farmer Time between schools and primary producers;
  • Increasing effective promotion of primary industries career pathways to secondary students and teachers; and joint funding submissions to support the above objectives, where appropriate.
