Jan. 13: The National Corn Growers Association’s annual report for the 2013 fiscal year is now available online. A printed copy of the report, which highlights the association’s achievements over the previous year and features current financial information, will also be sent to all active members and made available at upcoming meetings.
“While we accomplished so much in 2013, it is imperative that each and every farmer takes the initiative again over the coming months,” said NCGA Chairwoman Pam Johnson, a grower from Floyd, Iowa, who served as president last year. “We face an ongoing barrage of issues that could threaten our markets, our agricultural safety net and our very ability to farm the best way we know how. We must act to defend these things that ultimately help produce a crop for those who rely upon us and to do so while sensibly and sustainably managing resources. NCGA continually leads efforts to tackle these issues head-on, but it relies upon the strength of its grassroots, farmers like you, to determine its priorities, its direction and then to vocally and actively support the initiatives that will help us reach our goals. By working together, we can make it happen.”
Themed “Taking Initiative,” the 2013 report spotlights efforts made by NCGA throughout the year to lead the industry and find innovative ways to support the work done by U.S. corn farmers. Including perspective from grower leaders, information about the activities of NCGA’s action teams and committees and updates on its major image programs, the report provides a comprehensive resource for anyone looking to delve further into what NCGA does for our nation’s farmers.
