ICGA Invites Farmers to Discuss Key Policy Issues at Roundtables

Policy development at the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) is a vital grassroots process. Each year, ICGA hosts roundtable meetings in local communities across the state to gather insight and feedback on priorities from members. These meetings, held in each crop reporting district, allow ICGA members to come together, share a meal, and discuss key issues impacting corn farmers.

Policies brought forward and approved at roundtable meetings go on to the annual ICGA Grassroots Summit on August 28th for the ICGA delegates to debate for adoption into the ICGA policy book. This process enables the organization to take action in lobbying for and supporting sound policy development and pro-farmer legislation.

Roundtables are FREE for ICGA members, but registration is requested. A meal will be included at each session. If you can’t attend a roundtable but wish to present a policy resolution for consideration, please contact your local ICGA Board member.
