The National Corn Growers Association Friday announced the promotion of Jon Doggett to Executive Vice President, effective January 1.
In his new role, Doggett will lead efforts to expand NCGA’s alliances and strategic partnerships, and elevate its national profile. Doggett will continue to manage the organization’s 10-person Washington, DC office and lead its public policy efforts.
Doggett has served as Vice President of Public Policy since July 2002, where he directs all aspects of NCGA efforts involving the federal government. He was also named one of Washington’s Most Influential Lobbyists by The Hill newspaper.
Raised on his family’s ranch in Montana, Jon has substantial knowledge of production agriculture and more than 25 years of agricultural policy experience. His ability to look at issues with a fresh perspective and find a common ground has been the cornerstone of Doggett’s career.
Prior to joining NCGA, Doggett spent eleven years at the American Farm Bureau Federation, where he was the Bureau’s lead lobbyist on a number of public policy issues, including federal lands, climate change, land use, energy, and endangered species.
Doggett also worked for the National Cattleman’s Association/Public Lands Council and served as Senior Legislative Assistant for former Montana Congressman Ron Marlenee. In 2007 he was appointed by USDA Secretary Mike Johanns to the Agricultural Technical Advisory Committee for Trade.Share
