By | July 01, 2002
The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) has named Jon Doggett as vice president of public policy. In this position, Doggett will be responsible for administration of trade, farm bill and legislative programs. He will be based in NCGA's Washington, D.C. office. Doggett brings to NCGA a wealth of experience in government relations. Most recently, he was senior director of congressional affairs for the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), where he managed regulatory and legislative projects, including energy, federal lands, land use, natural resources and climate issues. "We're very excited to have Jon join the NCGA staff," said Rick Tolman, NCGA CEO. "He has a strong knowledge of the issues NCGA is committed to—most notably renewable fuels, energy policy and farm policy. Together, his agricultural background and his strengths in grassroots advocacy are assets for this position. No doubt, the organization will benefit from Jon's strong professional working style; he is accomplished at getting things done."
