Aug.29: With only days left, the National Corn Growers Association reminds members it is still seeking applications from those interested in working on an NCGA action team or committee in the 2012 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. This service provides growers an opportunity to play an active role in shaping the future of their industry and to become a part of the national agricultural leadership community.
“As a grassroots organization, NCGA depends upon its members to step forward and play an active role in developing the policies that will guide our industry,” said NCGA First Vice President Garry Niemeyer. “This year, we have a broad array of opportunities that will allow members to take their involvement to the next level while exploring in great depth the areas which interest them the most.”
Positions are available on all teams and committees: Production and Stewardship Action Team, Research and Business Development Action Team, Public Policy Action Team, Grower Services Action Team, Ethanol Committee, Trade Policy and Biotechnology Action Team and CornPAC.
Action team and committee applications are available by contacting your state corn organization or NCGA. Deadline for receipt of applications in the NCGA St. Louis office is Thursday, Sept.1. Interested parties can contact Kathy Baker at the NCGA office with questions, at (636) 733-9004.
