Now is the time to become involved with the National Corn Growers Association. The Nominating Committee is seeking applications for the 2018 Corn Board.
“I have had the privilege of working with so many talented, dedicated volunteers who step forward to lead this organization during my years on the Corn Board,” said NCGA Chairman and Nominating Committee Chair Chip Bowling. “Their willingness to step forward as volunteer leaders plays a crucial role in building NCGA’s future successes. As a true grassroots organization, we rely upon farmers to volunteer to lead, helping to shape policy and drive efforts. Serving on the Corn Board empowers farmers to play a proactive role in determining the collective future of our industry.”
The NCGA Corn Board represents the organization on all matters while directing both policy and supervising day-to-day operations. Board members serve the organization in a variety of ways. They represent the federation of state organizations, supervise the affairs and activities of NCGA in partnership with the chief executive officer and implement NCGA policy established by the Corn Congress. Members also act as spokespeople for the NCGA and enhance the organization’s public standing on all organizational and policy issues.
Applications must be completed by Friday, January 6. Candidates will be introduced in March at the Corn Congress meeting held during the Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas. Elections will take place in July at Corn Congress in Washington D.C. and elected members will take their places on October 1.
