Emily Schneider joined the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and U.S. Grains Council (USGC) on April 2 as the receptionist/administrative assistant in the organizations’ co-located offices in Washington, D.C.
In addition to various administrative duties, Schneider will represent the NCGA and Council by serving as the first point of contact for callers and visitors. While both organizations are in telework status, she is learning operations for each group as well as providing administrative support related to information technology, accounting and other departments.
“Emily’s positive attitude and ability to handle situations in a calm and professional manner make her a great asset,” said Helen Elmore, USGC director of finance and administration. “Her prior work familiarized her with the programs we use and gave her exposure to customer service – both of which are of benefit to her new role.”
Prior to the NCGA and Council, Schneider worked at Bright Horizons, a child development center, where she served as an assistant director and lead teacher at locations in Virginia and the District of Colombia.
Schneider earned a bachelor’s degree in child and family studies from Ohio University.
Please join the NCGA and Council in welcoming Emily!
