The National Corn Growers Association is pleased to announce that Cathryn Wojcicki has been promoted to the position of Senior Communications Manager.
“Cathryn has demonstrated her skills and ability to manage high-impact programs for some time now, and we’re pleased to announce her well-deserved promotion,” said NCGA Vice President of Communications Mary Hagan.
Since joining NCGA in September 2009, Wojcicki has served in an ever-increasing capacity. In addition to managing our editorial calendar, she serves as lead staff for the Consumer Engagement Action Team, and as second staff on the Commodity Classic Joint Venture Committee. In addition, she leads NCGA’s participation in the CommonGround program. Her work on CommonGround, the World of Corn and NCGA’s annual report has brought the association several recent awards.
NCGA is taking a series of actions to do our part to help contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic fallout it is creating for corn farmers and our customers. Short term, this means instituting policies to protect the health and safety of our stakeholders and the broader communities we serve. Long term, we’re focused on creating solutions to help corn farmers and our customers recover from the financial impacts of this crisis.
CommonGround is a group of farmers connecting with consumers through conversations about science and research and personal stories about food and misinformation surrounding farming. Supported by the NCGA and state corn organizations.
The Soil Health Partnership (SHP) is a farmer-led initiative that fosters transformation in agriculture through improved soil health. Administered by NCGA the partnership has more than 220 working farms enrolled in 16 states. SHP’s mission is to utilize science and data to partner with farmers who are adopting conservation agricultural practices that improve the economic and environmental sustainability of the farm.
