Applications to Run for Indiana Corn Growers Association Board Due July 30


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (June 29, 2017) — Indiana corn farmers who want their voice heard concerning policy issues facing Indiana’s corn industry are encouraged to apply to run for the Indiana Corn Growers Association. The ICGA board advocates for Indiana corn farmers on local, state and federal levels.

ICGA’s districts match the nine Congressional districts across the state. The board of directors is currently looking to fill seats in three of its districts. This year, elections take place in Districts 1, 4 and 7.
 
“Decisions about agriculture often fall into the hands of those who have little understanding of how laws and policies impact Indiana’s farms,” says Ralph Kauffman, chair of the ICGA governance committee and farmer from Atlanta, Ind. “Serving on the ICGA board offers farmers the opportunity to work together and engage key-decision makers who play a role in shaping legislation and policy. By joining together through ICGA, we can help our leaders understand our role in the livelihood of our communities, state and country.”
 
To be eligible to run in the ICGA election, candidates must be an ICGA member in good standing; a producer of corn as an owner, manager or operator; a resident of the district they seek to represent; and current on their ICGA membership dues.
           
Elections will be held during ICGA’s annual meeting in November 2017.
