Schneider previously served the Council and the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) as the receptionist and administrative assistant in the organizations’ co-located offices in Washington, D.C.

“In addition to already knowing our organization, Emily has a lot of great previous experiences that will serve her well in this new role. I am confident she will be a great addition to the industry relations team and therefore the entire organization and membership,” said Ellen Zimmerman, USGC’s director of industry relations.

In the role of industry relations coordinator, Schneider will provide administrative support to the industry relations department, assist in the preparation of Council meetings and conduct membership outreach and coordination.

“I have really enjoyed working with the Council for the past year and a half, and I look forward to my new role with this wonderful organization. I feel very fortunate that I can continue to grow with U.S. Grains Council,” Schneider said.

Schneider holds a bachelor’s degree in child and family studies from Ohio University.
