Nebraska Corn Growers Association Elects Officers at Annual Meeting

Members of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association gathered at Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln on Thursday, December 1, 2016, for their annual meeting.  During the meeting, NeCGA elected officers and recognized a past executive director of the association for his committed service.

Scott Merritt, President of Capitol Management Group, was honored with NeCGA’s Golden Ear award, which recognizes outstanding service to Nebraska’s corn industry.  Merritt served as the executive director of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association (NeCGA) for over 18 years – leading the association in becoming the premier legislative and membership advocate for Nebraska’s corn growers.

NeCGA President Larry Mussack presented the award commenting, “We truly appreciate the years of dedication that Scott gave to the association which set a solid foundation for our association’s future growth.”

Following the annual meeting, the election of officers was held.  Dan Wesely of Morse Bluff was elected as the new President of NeCGA. Other officers elected include: Dan Nerud of Dorchester, Vice President; Andy Jobman of Gothenburg, Secretary; and Chuck Emanuel of North Bend, Treasurer. Larry Mussack of Decatur will move to Chairman of the Board after serving two years as President of the association. NeCGA is thankful for Larry’s commitment to the organization during his term.

“We are very grateful for the volunteer efforts that our grower leadership and officers give on an annual basis,” said Kelly Brunkhorst, executive director of NeCGA. “As we finish up our new strategic plan, I look forward to working alongside our leadership in increasing opportunities for our membership.”
