Who We Are
Rebecca Kane serves as the meeting manager for the U.S. Grains Council, a non-profit organization that promotes the global use of U.S. barley, corn, sorghum and related products including ethanol and distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS). In this capacity, she oversees all aspects of USGC meetings and events.
Prior to the Council, Kane worked for JDRF, a charitable organization dedicating to funding type 1 diabetes research, as the development coordinator. In that capacity, she executed large scale events for more than 2,500 participants.
Kane holds a bachelor's degree from the College of Staten Island in communications. She also is certified in event and hospitality management.
The Council is a private, non-profit partnership of agribusinesses and producers committed to building and expanding international markets for U.S. feed grains and ethanol. The organization has 10 international offices that oversee programs in more than 50 countries. Support for the Council comes from its producer and agribusiness members and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) through programs authorized in the U.S. farm bill.
