GROWERS ASSOCIATION (CCGA)

CCGA is a member organization founded in 1979. dues-paying farmers and ag representatives focus on policy at the local, state and national levels. WE represent and advocate for corn growers in Colorado.

The CCGA works in coordination with the CCAC (Colorado Corn Administrative Committee) and is the membership arm of Colorado Corn. This association is self-sustaining, meaning that it is entirely compliant with the stipulation that penny funds managed by the CCAC – and administered by the Colorado Department of Agriculture – are never to be used to lobby for or against bills which would impact corn producers.

CCGA is entirely dependent upon membership dues, sponsorship dollars and other financial support from our constituencies. We serve members’ needs by being their voice in government, educating lawmakers and government officials to ensure regulations on agriculture are appropriate, focusing on food labelling laws, crop insurance, U.S. water laws, renewable fuel standards, and the EPA’s rules on pesticide use.

The primary reason to become a member of CCGA is to feel confident that your issues are being brought to the forefront where it matters most. You can be sure that we are helping to protect agricultural interests both in Denver and in Washington, DC. Beyond that crucial representation in policy issues, your CCGA membership also allows you to receive a few nice perks from both the state and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA). These include discounts from national and local business organizations such as Cabela’s, the Colorado Avalanche and MASA (Medical Transport Solutions)…… and at the three-year new or renewing membership level, a bag of free corn seed.

Really, the main reason to join CCGA is to be represented at legislative meetings in the state and in Congress. We participate in state and federal regulatory affairs to protect agricultural interests, opportunities and freedoms.

The membership perks are a small bonus!

We call on all corn growers in the state to join us.
