NCGA Membership Tops 40K

The National Corn Growers Association says its membership now surpasses the 40-thousand mark - signaling deep and continued support for the 56-year-old national agriculture association. NCGA President Pam Johnson - an Iowa farmer - says the growing membership means a louder voice in our nation's capital standing up for corn farmers throughout the nation at a time when there are many pressing issues on the table. Johnson salutes the hard work of membership recruiters, state and national staff and all who have helped build NCGA into such a respected and strong grassroots association.

Johnson notes there are some seriously debated issues in Washington right now - including the delayed farm bill and attacks on the Renewable Fuel Standard for ethanol - which represents an important market for corn farmers. She says NCGA members see what the organization is doing and recognize the importance of its work. At the same time - Johnson says they enjoy a wide array of benefits that make membership really worthwhile.
