Corn Congress elects five to NCGA Corn Board

At their first session of the July Corn Congress, delegates from state corn associations and checkoff organizations elected five members to the National Corn Growers Association Corn Board. They also ratified Bart Schott of North Dakota as the association's first vice president for the 2010 fiscal year.

"It is gratifying to see so much interest in serving in our association's leadership," said NCGA President Bob Dickey. "It says a lot about their faith in NCGA and their own dedication to serving the interests of their fellow growers.

We've got a lot of work to do and all the growers here have shown a lot of enthusiasm for moving our agenda forward."

Elected to the Corn Board for terms beginning Oct. 1, were:
