The National Corn Growers Association Nominating Committee is accepting applications for the 2015 Corn Board. Through the Corn Board – NCGA members can become an integral part of the organization’s leadership. NCGA Chairwoman and Nominating Committee Chair Pam Johnson says the willingness of the group’s volunteer leadership plays an important role in ensuring NCGA’s continued success.
