The general meeting of FederUnacoma (Italian Federation of agricultural machinery manufacturers) held in Bologna on Thursday 24 September hosted the elections for the renewal of the Boards of the five associations that make up the Federation.
Altogether 24 directors were elected, divided as follows: eight for ASSOMAO (the association that brings together the manufacturers of operating agricultural machinery); three for ASSOMASE (self-propelled machines); four for ASSOTRACTORS (tractors); six for the COMACOMP (components), and three for the COMAGARDEN (gardening machinery and equipment).
In addition to the directors of the individual associations, the general meeting also voted for the seven members of the General Board of the Federation, chosen not as a quota of the individual associations but across the board, within the entire membership base.
In accordance with the articles of association adopted by Confindustria, the newly elected members of the individual Boards and of the General Board will remain in office for two years (with a mandate that may be renewed) and are in addition to the positions of Chairman of the Federation and of Chairmen of the individual associations, which were defined with the 2019 elections, staggered by one year by regulation, and which will therefore expire in June 2021.
The agricultural machinery exhibition, organized by FederUnacoma at the Bologna exhibition centre, will be held from 19 to 23 October 2021.The choice was guided by the health emergency and the complex needs linked to the trade exhibition calendar and the seasonality of the work processes.From November 2022 the Exposition will return to its normal frequency.
The digital platform will be perfected quickly, to support the promotional activities of agricultural machinery companies. Over 59 thousand accesses were recorded in the five days of the EDP review, and about 10 thousand users participated in on-line seminars and conferences on salient issues of agricultural mechanization. President Malavolti extended his special thanks to the Minister of Agriculture Teresa Bellanova, and to the representatives of the government and institutions who took part in the EDP event.
EIMA Digital Preview, the first virtual exhibition of agricultural machinery, dedicated Saturday 14 November to the issues of safety, ergonomics, and the prevention of accidents at work in the primary sector. The prevention of accidents with tractors and the devices aimed at improving the well-being of the operator on board the self-propelled machines.
The fourth day of the digital review of agricultural mechanics featured many events centred on cultivation techniques and on the topic of safety, but also on aspects related to information in the sector. A Yearbook brings together all the professionals who deal with communication in the sector's companies, in the competent bodies, and in the specialized media.
