They represent the federation of state organizations, supervise the affairs and activities of NCGA in partnership with the chief executive officer and implement NCGA policy established by the Corn Congress. Members also act as spokespeople for the NCGA and enhance the organization’s public standing on all organizational and policy issues.
Applications are due Friday, January 24. Nominated candidates will be introduced at the 2020 Corn Congress meeting, held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic in San Antonio, Texas. Corn Board members will be elected at the July 2020 Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., and the new terms begin Oct. 1.
