Four Colorado representatives appointed to National Corn Growers Association action teams and committees 

The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) today announced its slate of farmer leaders who will serve the industry as members of action teams and committees in the next fiscal year — beginning Oct. 1 — and four Colorado representatives made the list.
They are:
  • Colorado Corn Executive Director Mark Sponsler, appointed to serve on the NCGA Corn Productivity and Quality Action Team
  • Colorado Corn Executive Coordinator Ann Cross, appointed to serve on the NCGA Engaging Members Committee
  • Rod Hahn, a Yuma farmer and Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) board secretary, appointed to serve on the NCGA Engaging Members Committee
  • Mike Lefever, a Longmont farmer and Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) board vice president, appointed to serve on the NCGA Market Access Action Team
These four Colorado representatives and the other volunteers will actively shape the future of their industry by guiding programs and carrying out the policies and priorities that guide NCGA. The action teams and committees will have their first set of meetings in St. Louis in December.
Colorado Corn, based in Greeley, is made up of the Colorado Corn Growers Association and Colorado Corn Administrative Committee. The Colorado Corn Growers Association (CCGA) is comprised of dues-paying members who are politically active, focusing on policy that impacts corn producers and agriculture in general. The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) oversees how Colorado’s corn check-off dollars (one penny per bushel of corn produced in the state) are spent on research, market development, outreach, education and other various endeavors.
