The 12-month program includes three two-day sessions — Feb. 17-18, summer 2020 and December 2020 — and the Nebraska Corn Growers Association annual meeting.

Session locations will be determined after the 8-12 class members are notified of their selection in February.

The $190 registration fee will be waived for participants who have been NeCGA members for three years. All other program costs are covered by NeCGA.
