The National Corn Growers Association Nominating Committee has issued its last call for members to file applications for the 2011 Corn Board. Applications must be submitted by January. 15. Through the Corn Board, members can become an integral part of the organization's leadership. 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.
Nominated candidates will be introduced at the February 2010 Corn Congress meeting, held in conjunction with the Commodity Classic in Anaheim, California. Corn Board members will be elected at the July 2010 Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., and the new terms begin Oct. 1.
