National Corn Growers Association membership set yet another membership record at the end of June, with 41,185 active members. This membership record replaces the former record of 40,797, set in April. Notably, the April record concluded a three-month run of consistent record membership.
“The membership records just keep coming in 2014, and we couldn’t be more excited,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre. “With major issues surrounding the RFS, farm bill implementation and pending regulations on the horizon, our members recognize the importance of NCGA’s work. Our members, the true grassroots, give us the strength and motivate our mission, pushing us to greater heights year after year.”
NCGA has members across the contiguous United States and works in cooperation with grower associations and state corn checkoff boards from 28 states, representing the interests of its members and the more than 300,000 growers who contribute corn checkoff funds in their states.
