The National Corn Growers Association is accepting applications from grower-members for the 2016 Corn Board. The NCGA Corn Board represents the organization on all matters while directing both policy and supervising day-to-day operations. NCGA Chairman Martin Barbre said “serving on the Corn Board empowers farmers and allows them to play an active role in shaping their industry and our collective future.” According to NCGA, board members represent 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. Application information can be found at www.ncga.com

Applications are due Friday, January 9. Nominated candidates will be introduced at the February 2015 Corn Congress meeting, held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic in Phoenix, Arizona. Corn Board members will be elected at the July 2015 Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., and the new terms begin October first.
