Hort Innovation’s AGM 2018

Hort Innovation’s Annual General Meeting this year will be held in Brisbane on Friday 23 November, 2018.

Don’t forget to complete your Annual Levy Return

The week beginning 13 August 2018, members would have received a hard copy letter as well as an email notification inviting all levy paying members of Hort Innovation to complete an Annual Levy Return, should they wish to obtain voting entitlements at the AGM 2018.

There are two ways you can lodge your Annual Levy Return:

  • Complete the Annual Levy Return form online by Friday 28 September, 2018 by visiting https://events.miraqle.com/HortInnovation/ and using your unique member number and PIN that you have received via hard copy post and email (this is a two-step authorisation process to help enhance security and you need both the member number and PIN to log onto the online system)


  • Complete the hard copy annual levy return form, which members will receive by mail. The hard copy form must also be received by Friday 28 September 2018.

If you have any questions about the process, your member number or PIN, please contact Link Market Service on 1800 660 083.
