Aug. 6: The National Corn Growers Association is seeking applications from members interested in working on an NCGA action team or committee in the 2013 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. This service provides growers an opportunity to play an active role in shaping the future of their industry and to become a part of the national agricultural leadership community.


“As a grassroots organization, NCGA relies on its members to step forward and take an active role in developing the policies that will lead our industry forward,” said NCGA First Vice President Pam Johnson. “This year, we have opportunities in all of the areas the organization touches, thus allowing members to take their involvement to the next level while exploring in great depth the areas which interest them the most.”


Positions are available on all teams and committees: Production and Stewardship Action Team, Research and Business Development Action Team, Public Policy Action Team, Grower Services Action Team, Ethanol Committee, Trade Policy and Biotechnology Action Team and CornPAC.


Action team and committee applications are available online at the NCGA Insider Web site. Deadline for receipt of applications in applicant's state corn association office is Tuesday, Sept. 4. All applications must first be submitted to the corn association in the farmer's home state for consideration. Interested parties can contact Kathy Baker at the NCGA office with questions, at (636) 733-9004.
