The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) and Growth Energy will discuss exciting ethanol initiatives and other opportunities on the horizon for corn growers and biofuel producers during a free virtual town hall meeting on Wednesday, October 28 at 11:00 a.m. Central/12:00 p.m. Eastern.
This year, the global pandemic has challenged rural America like never before. But corn growers and ethanol producers have stood together to weather the storm and seize opportunities for growth. Today, these partners remain focused on the same mission: to drive demand and propel this industry forward. That’s why Growth Energy and the National Corn Growers Association are proud to present this virtual town hall where farmers, biofuel producers and leaders of both businesses and communities will hear about:
- The latest policy priorities for the biofuel and ag industry
- Opportunities for growth in the domestic and global marketplace
- The path to increased consumer choice at the pump via higher ethanol fuel blends
- Ways to elevate rural America’s voice among policymakers
Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor and NCGA President John Linder will be participating in the Town Hall with Farm Journal’s Chip Flory.

Short term, this means instituting policies to protect the health and safety of our stakeholders and the broader communities we serve. Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
