Jan. 7: The National Corn Growers Association’s annual report for the 2012 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.
“As the nation’s leading trade association representing corn growers, we’re proud of the work we do to promote opportunities, expand markets and build a brighter future for agriculture,” said NCGA Chairman Garry Niemeyer, a grower from Auburn, Ill., who served as president last year. “We’ve toiled tirelessly over the past year to proactively advance the image of corn growers and create opportunities to increase demand for their product. This report not only outlines the activities and programs grower contributions support; it also demonstrates their importance and effectiveness.”
Themed “Staying the Course,” the 2012 report spotlights efforts made by NCGA throughout the year to steadily, deliberately work toward a brighter future for corn farmers while pragmatically dealing with a myriad of drought-related issues.
