Washington, D.C. (December 11, 2019) – The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG), the nation’s leading wheat farmer advocacy organization, has announced that it will be moving its office. The National Wheat Foundation (NWF), NAWG’s educational counterpart, has owned the current building next on Capitol Hill since 1978, and NAWG has been its tenant for nearly that long. NWF has decided to sell the building to keep pace with NAWG’s rising presence on Capitol Hill.
“The National Wheat Foundation recognized that selling the building was in the best interest for wheat growers,” stated National Wheat Foundation Executive Director Chandler Goule. “The Foundation spent nearly a year deciding the next best steps for the building but was certain that NAWG’s new location must be located on Capitol Hill to continue their strong representation for wheat growers.”
NAWG will be moving on January 4, 2020. Complete details with its official suite number will be announced in early January 2020. NAWG CEO Chandler Goule and staff are working hard to advance and grow the organization and see this change as a great way to move it in that direction.
NAWG is the primary policy representative in Washington D.C. for wheat growers, working to ensure a better future for America’s growers, the industry and the general public. NAWG works with a team of 20 state wheat grower organizations to benefit the wheat industry at the national levels. From their offices in the Wheat Growers Building on Capitol Hill, NAWG’s staff members are in constant contact with state association representatives, NAWG grower leaders, Members of Congress, Congressional staff members, Administration officials and the public.
