U.S. Wheat Associates promoted Catherine Miller to Director of Programs.  She joined USW in 2018 as the Programming and Planning Coordinator and shifted to Programs Coordinator in 2021.

“Catherine has done a great job in managing many of USW’s domestic programs, and she excelled in helping USW transition to virtual programming when COVID-19 began,” said Erica Oakley, USW Vice President of Programs.

In her new role, Miller will lead program support for coordinating trade teams, short courses, and board teams with USW’s overseas offices and state wheat commissions.  Miller also works closely with overseas staff to identify consultant needs and coordinate annual crop quality seminars.

USW added Miller will also continue supporting the shift to more virtual programs, including taking an active role in conducting monthly webinars and crop updates. Miller joined the organization after graduating with honors from Auburn University in May 2017, earning a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business and economics.
