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 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (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 in communications from the College of Staten Island. She also is certified in event and hospitality management.
Founded in 1960, the U.S. Grains Council works to promote exports of U.S. grains and related products through a network of 10 overseas offices and 30 in-country representatives. The Council believes exports are vital to global economic development and to U.S. agriculture's profitability. 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.
