Richard Preston, Joseph Sisk and Laura Knoth spent a couple of cold days in St. Louis this week attending the NCGA Leadership Symposium along with leaders from Corn Growers’ Associations across the country. The training focused on developing skills for working together, performing board duties and responsibilities, and working for the future of the organization. They also learned to assess trends, and develop processes for planning and thinking strategically about the needs of corn growers.
KyCorn Vice President Richard Preston also attended the NCGA State Presidents’ and Corn Board Meeting to represent Kentucky’s priorities. Those included market development through trade and ethanol, research for improved production and sustainability, building consumer trust and communication, growing membership and leadership development.
