The vast majority of NGFA's committees have meetings during Convention, which are open to all NGFA members. The Board of Directors also meets. Annual Association business is taken care of, and new officers are elected in even-numbered years to coincide with the changing of Chairmanship. Convention programming includes two morning general sessions featuring speakers such as industry executive leadership, experts in international trade, elected officials who represent the agriculture industry, and others.
