Skunes selected as vice president for NCGA's Corn Board

Kevin Skunes will be NCGA's representative to the National Pork Producers Council.

Kevin Skunes of North Dakota was nominated by the National Corn Growers Association’s Corn Board to become the first vice president of the organization, effective Oct. 1.

“I am deeply honored that my colleagues on the board chose to place their trust in my capability and commitment to leading our association forward as we work to create greater opportunities for corn growers across the country,” Skunes said. “We understand our farmers face a growing number of challenges. Working together as an industry and with regulators and legislators in Washington, we must grow markets through trade agreements, a return to statutory RVO levels outlined in the RFS while combating the proliferation of regulations impacting U.S. farmers. I look forward to working with our grower leadership over the coming years to find innovative, impactful ways to grow the demand for our growing crop.”

Skunes will be the board liaison to the Grower Service Action Team and NCGA's representative to the National Pork Producers Council.

“NCGA’s success can be attributed, in large part, to the quality of farmers who have stepped forward to lead the organization, and we strongly believe that Kevin will continue this fine tradition,” NCGA President Chip Bowling said. “Our Corn Board appreciates the energy he brings to our work and the thoughtful insights he contributes to our discussions. Skunes continually demonstrates his dedication to farmers and his willingness to work tirelessly on their behalf.”
