Brittany Wilson joined the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and the National Association of Corn Growers (NCGA) on Sept. 28 as the receptionist/administrative assistant in the organizations’ co-located offices in Washington, D.C.
In addition to various administrative duties, Wilson will represent the Council and NCGA by serving as the first point of contact for callers and visitors. Wilson spent time working in her current role as a temporary employee before officially assuming her new position.
“We are impressed with Brittany’s organizational skills and her outstanding approach to teamwork,” said Helen Elmore, USGC director of finance and administration. “Her upbeat attitude greets every visitor and every caller to our and NCGA’s offices. In her short time here, Brittany has already proven herself to be of great value in maintaining smooth office operations.”
Prior to the Council, Wilson worked as a regional director and a North Carolina state chair for Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). She also gained organization and management skills as a North American executive board member while working at Students for Liberty (SFL).
