ICMC looking for candidates to petition for its board of directors
Indiana Corn Marketing Council is seeking candidates to petition to run for its board of directors. Board members determine the promotional, educational, and research activities funded by the corn checkoff.
To run for a director seat, farmers must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter, and a resident in the appropriate district. Farmers who submit a petition by June 12 will be listed as a candidate on the election ballot. Voting takes place at Purdue Cooperative Extension Service county offices or by absentee ballot in August.
There is one open seat in district three, a seat up for re-election in districts 6 and district 9, and two statewide at-large seats— one open seat and one seat up for re-election.
Newly elected directors will begin a three-year term on October 1. ICMC directors can serve three consecutive full terms or a total of nine consecutive years.
Indiana Corn Marketing Council’s strategic plan focuses on market development, production research, and farmer services. Priorities include ethanol, transportation infrastructure, livestock promotion, and international exports.
