The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is pleased to announce that Bryan Goodman joined NCGA as the Director of Policy Communications on July 19. He will provide strategic communications counsel on NCGA policy priorities, work closely with reporters covering farm policy and implement communications tactics that will help advance NCGA’s advocacy priorities on Capitol Hill.
Bryan has spent years working on policy issues for some of Washington’s leading associations. At the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, he devised and implemented communications plans to shape public policy on a range of issues, including electric vehicles, trade and data privacy. At the American Chemistry Council, Bryan provided communications counsel to executives from some of the country’s leading chemical companies, while supporting the work of ACC’s federal and state lobbyists.
“Bryan’s experience will be incredibly valuable as we work with Congress on policy issues that are important to corn growers,” said NCGA Vice President of Communications Neil Caskey. “His experience working with local and state advocates makes him well suited to provide communications support to NCGA’s state affiliates.”
Bryan, an Arkansas native, received a B.A. in political science and an M.A. in journalism from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He moved to Washington in 2000 to serve as spokesperson for a U.S. Representative from his home state.
