“Through working with my fellow growers on the Corn Board, I have come to more fully appreciate the wealth of talented, dedicated volunteers who step forward to lead this organization,” said NCGA Chairman and Nominating Committee Chair Garry Niemeyer. “This willingness plays an integral role in ensuring NCGA’s continued success. As a true grassroots organization, we rely upon farmers to volunteer for leadership, helping to shape policy and drive efforts. Serving on the Corn Board allows farmers a chance to build a better future for the industry and become an active force for change.”

The NCGA Corn Board represents the organization on all matters while directing both policy and supervising day-to-day operations. Board members serve the organization in a variety of ways. They represent the federation of state organizations, supervise the affairs and activities of NCGA in partnership with the chief executive officer and implement NCGA policy established by the Corn Congress. Members also act as spokespeople for the NCGA and enhance the organization’s public standing on all organizational and policy issues.

Applications are due Friday, January 11. Nominated candidates will be introduced at the March 2013 Corn Congress meeting, held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic in Kissimmee,Fla. Corn Board members will be elected at the July 2013 Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., and the new terms begin Oct. 1.
