The NCGA Nominating Committee is now accepting applications from members for the 2013 Corn Board. The 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.
NCGA President, and central Illinois farmer, Garry Niemeyer stressed that every grower, even if he or she is unaware, has a wealth of knowledge and perspective to offer the organization. He also notes that serving fellow farmers through the Corn Board rewards volunteers with training and experience that hone leadership and communications skills. Applications are due Friday, January 13.
