INDIANA – AG POLICY SUMMIT

The Indiana Corn Growers Association partnered with the Indiana Soybean Alliance to host the Indiana Ag Policy Summit in July 2015. The program was developed from the need to bring our members together for our summer joint policy meeting and to get more involved in the policy realm in our state. The ICGA staff brainstormed and decided to develop a robust program with speakers, a discussion with U.S. Senate Candidates and a town hall with our members and guest to discuss our policies and priorities. It was our goal to seek ways to involve more members, non-members, industry partners all while getting media attention for our organizations. With the various program activities and work by our staff and boards we were successful and had three of the four candidates, a great town hall discussion and various media coverage by political reporters and agriculture media.
