The National Corn Growers Association welcomes back Sarah Doese, who rejoins the organization as the manager of regulatory affairs and public policy in the Washington office. Doese previously served at NCGA as the legislative assistant. In her new position, she will manage a diverse issue portfolio with an emphasis on regulatory affairs and emerging issues, including precision agriculture and technology, labor and immigration, and rural broadband.
“Sarah is a talented, knowledgeable and passionate advocate for agriculture. We are excited to welcome her back to NCGA,” said CEO Jon Doggett. “With her new experience on Capitol Hill and a long family history in production agriculture, she will be a strong advocate for corn farmers on policy and regulatory matters affecting their operations. I am confident that she will help us expand our relationships on the Hill and find common ground on our most important policy priorities for agriculture.”
Doese comes to NCGA from the House Appropriations Agriculture Subcommittee where she served as majority staff. Prior to that, she worked for Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE) as a legislative correspondent.
Doese graduated from Iowa State University in December 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture education. She has completed internships with CropLife America, Iowa FFA Association, and the National Association of Agriculture Educators. Sarah is a former Iowa FFA state officer and was a member of the Sigma Alpha professional agriculture sorority at Iowa State.
She is a native of Fairbank, Iowa.
