Iowa Woman Elected as National Corn Growers Association Executive Officer

Iowa Woman Elected as National Corn Growers Association Executive Officer


Pam Johnson, a corn farmer from Floyd, IA, has been elected as first vice president for the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) for the 2011-2012 fiscal year.  When she becomes NCGA president in October 2012, Johnson will be the first woman to lead NCGA.

"It is an honor to be elected an officer for the National Corn Growers Association," Johnson says. "This is an organization whose farmer leaders and staff members are supremely dedicated to an industry vitally important to our country and our world. I look forward to working with farmer members, state leaders and many partners as NCGA continues its mission as the leading national voice for corn farmers, and as a thought leader when it comes to growing opportunities for American agriculture."

Johnson is a director of the Iowa Corn Growers Association and former Iowa Corn Promotion Board chair. Johnson's election is scheduled for a ratification vote by delegates at the July 13 Corn Congress meeting in Washington, D.C.

“Pam has given a lot of time and leadership as an advocate for agriculture at the local, state, national, and international level,” says Craig Floss, Iowa Corn’s chief executive officer. “I have no doubt she will do an outstanding job representing Iowa’s corn farmers as a member of the NCGA executive committee.”
