The U.S. Grains Council announces registration is now open for the 54th Annual Board of Delegates Meeting to be held July 28-30 in Omaha, Neb.

About 200 U.S. corn, barley, and sorghum farmers, and agribusiness representatives will learn about keynote speaker Howard G. Buffet’s foundation’s commitment to agriculture, council efforts in Africa, the future of freight and other key issues affecting the grain industry around the world.

“This year, the council is celebrating Partnerships & Possibilities,” says Julius Schaaf, USGC chairman. “We’ll explore this theme with three days of discussion revolving around export growth, global strategy, emerging opportunities and competitive challenges.”

In Omaha, the board of delegates will elect officers and directors for the upcoming year. The advisory teams will review the Unified Export Strategy - the council’s program goals, priorities and strategies - for 2015. Attendees will leave with a new perspective on the work necessary to keep the United States at the forefront of global agricultural trade.

“We look forward to a productive meeting with the goal of ensuring the United States remains the world’s most reliable, transparent and trusted partner in advancing global food security through trade,” Schaaf said.
