About Us / Alumni


The Ballance Farm Environment Awards Alumni are an integral part of the New Zealand Farm Environment Trust Awards programme, with membership consisting of all Regional Supreme Winners and National Winners since the inception of the Awards in 2002.

The Alumni of past Supreme Winners are a rich resource of knowledge, information and examples of outstanding leadership in all aspects of environmental and farm management. They lead by example.

The role of the Alumni is:

  • to mentor potential entrants;
  • to promote the BFEA through regional initiatives;
  • to provide a leadership forum for all Alumni members;.
  • to encourage Alumni members to take on leadership roles within their own communities.

The Alumni is administered by the Alumni Committee, which is elected annually at the Alumni Annual Meeting held in conjunction with National Sustainability Showcase.
