Get Engaged, Get Involved, Get Going This New Year

Posted on January 20, 2015 at 3:44 PM by Iowa Corn

If you’ve found yourself already becoming a little lax on your New Year’s resolutions, Iowa Corn has just the solution. As a grassroots organization, we realize it’s our farmer members who are the true backbone of Iowa Corn. With that in mind, we hope in 2015 you will make a resolution to become a more-engaged Iowa Corn member, and here are a few ideas to get you started…
Research & Market Development
Our mission at Iowa Corn is creating opportunities for long-term corn grower profitability, which means we are committed to ensuring there are strong markets for your crop. Here are some ways you can be part of that initiative:
  • Learn more about the research efforts on new ways to use corn
  • Attend an ethanol pump promotion event in your area
  • Help promote home-grown fuels during the Iowa Corn 300 on July 18th
  • Take part in a trade mission to promote corn within international markets


Communications & Public Relations


The Iowa Corn team is dedicated to ensuring our farmers are heard and respected in the court of public opinion. Here are some ways you can help with that mission:


Government Relations


Each year ICGA members develop and vote on policy statements that ultimately guide our government relations efforts at the state and federal level. Here are some ways you can make your voice heard:


Membership & Leadership


Iowa Corn is a state organization, but we are only as strong as our farmer members and local leaders. Here are some ways you can get involved:
  • If you’re not already an ICGA member, sign up and learn about our membership benefits
  • Get involved in your county corn growers and/or district committee
  • Serve on one of our many issue committees
  • Apply for the next Iowa Corn Leadership and Development (I-LEAD) class
  • Encourage your friends and neighbors to get involved, because agriculture is stronger in numbers
