Each year, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) chairman chooses a theme to embody during his or her year of service. This year, 2022-23 Chairman Josh Miller has chosen his theme as “Live the Mission,” highlighting the work of the Council and its staff to develop markets, enable trade and improve lives.
“Mission has always been a guiding force for me, one that shows up in my life and responsibilities every day. Having a clear direction helps an organization get things done thoroughly and expediently, and while trade and exports are a long game, the U.S. Grains Council’s mission couldn’t be clearer – to develop markets, enable trade and improve lives,” Miller said.
Staff in 11 offices around the world and in the Council’s Washington, D.C., headquarters – as well as Council members and state cooperators – were asked to speak about how that mission shows up in the work they do every day on behalf of U.S. agriculture. The organization has created a web page to showcase these responses.

“These short, video interviews with Council staff are just a few examples of how we each Live the Mission for the U.S. Grains Council,” Miller said.
