The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) today announced that Peter Laudeman has been promoted to Manager of Public Policy, Risk Management and Renewable Fuels in the organization’s Washington, D.C. office. Laudeman has served as a Legislative Assistant in Washington since 2018.
Laudeman’s policy portfolio will expand to include renewable fuels issues, and he will take an active role in advancing NCGA ethanol priorities, including advocating for new Low Carbon Octane Standard (LCOS) legislation and other policies that grow demand for ethanol. His work on risk management issues, with NCGA’s Risk Management and Transportation Action Team, will continue in this new role.
“Peter has been an integral part of NCGA’s public policy work in Washington, D.C., providing policy support on risk management issues and assisting the Risk Management and Transportation Action Team with their work,” said NCGA Vice President of Public Policy Brooke Appleton. “I’m pleased that he will continue these efforts and look forward to the important role he will play in NCGA’s work to increase demand for corn.”
Laudeman joined NCGA after previously serving as an intern in the Washington office of Congressman Darin LaHood. Prior to that, he interned with the Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center.
Laudeman graduated magna cum laude from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, receiving a bachelor’s degree in agricultural and consumer economics with a concentration in public policy and law.
