This article is part of a series profiling candidates for the 2019 Corn Board.
Harold Wolle brings both academic knowledge of business administration and extensive leadership experience to his service of fellow farmers. Having already served as president of his state association and on the national level, he hopes to continue his work on the behalf of his industry as a member of the National Corn Growers Association Corn Board.
Wolle hopes to serve on the Corn Board in order to be a responsible spokesperson for our nation’s corn farmers while helping supervise the association’s activities and financial affairs. As a Corn Board member, he would use his 40-plus years of leadership experience, along with his formal education in business administration, to advance NCGA’s strategic priorities.
“NCGA has the powerful voice and influence needed to impact national policy in order to attain the organization’s strategic priorities,” Wolle has explained. “As a member of the Corn Board, I would work to further advance this important work while remaining steadfastly loyal to the values of our nation’s corn farmers.”
If elected, Wolle would work collaboratively with fellow Corn Board members to increase demand for corn, strengthen customer and consumer trust, and enhance productivity and sustainability. By placing a high value upon direct, constructive communications, he would work to ensure all the voices around the table are heard as the Board works to achieve consensus on important issues.
Recently, NCGA’s Off the Cob podcast series sat down with Wolle to discuss the most important topics, from what inspires such service to his goals for the organization and to gain his perspectives on leadership.
