WCGA Earns Grant to Support Grower Education, Awareness
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/06/2018
The Wisconsin Corn Growers Association was among the recipients of the 2018 Reaching for Excellence Seed Grant from the National Corn Growers Association. The funds will be used to support a Grassroots Workshop in conjunction with the annual Corn
Day at the Capitol in Madison next spring.
WCGA Director Nicole Wagner says the workshop, which is slated for April 16-17, aims to educate members as to the importance of their organization.
"We are excited to be able to help a new group of corn growers understand the value their voices have in Madison and help our elected officials understand the how their decisions can help or hurt the agricultural community," Wagner said.
The group also announced it has a new committee structure to better serve its grower members. Those committees include: Policy and Development, Marketing Communications, Corn PAC (Political Action Committee) and Scholarship.
