National Corn Growers Association membership climbed to even higher heights setting yet another membership record at the end of March, with 40,793 active members on the rolls. This membership record replaces the former record, of 40,287, set in February of 2014.
“We’re thrilled to set yet another membership record at a time when the average membership in trade associations like ours is flat or declining,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre. “Not only do we offer a terrific set of member benefits, but our growers know the value NCGA offers in Washington and throughout the country and recognize that grassroots efforts have been the strength and driving force behind their organization.”
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.
