ADMINISTRATIVE COMMITTEE (CCAC)
The Colorado Corn Administrative Committee (CCAC) was established over thirty years ago to manage a one-penny-per-bushel assessment collected by first handlers of sales of corn in the state.
The CCAC continues to manage the investments of Colorado’s corn check off dollars. This allocation is allowed to be used specifically for research, market development, outreach and education on behalf of corn producers in the state.
Overall, the CCAC works to showcase the $40 billion economic impact of corn for the state, making it a top contributor to Colorado’s economy each year. The CCAC emphasizes the stewardship of resources made by corn producers and their efforts in feeding and fueling Colorado’s five million plus population.
These funds are only invested after considerable discussion and a thoughtful approach to what’s going to be most effective for the Agriculture and Corn Community as a whole.
Farmers elected to the board and the annual budget are subject to approval by the Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture. The penny-per-bushel funds are prohibited from being used for policy efforts – such as lobbying for or against bills that impact corn producers. Those efforts fall squarely and solely on the CCGA, and their success is dependent on CCGA membership dues, sponsorship dollars and other support.
