After months of discussions about selling a well-recognized, but aging, building on Capitol Hill, the National Association of Wheat Growers will relocate its Washington headquarters.
The National Wheat Foundation, which owns the space where NAWG currently resides a few blocks from the Capitol building, has decided to sell the building it has owned since 1978. In a release, NAWG CEO Chandler Goule said NWF “recognized that selling the building was in the best interest for wheat growers.”
“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,” said Goule, who also serves as the NWF executive director.
According to a NAWG release, the organization has been a NWF tenant for nearly as long as the foundation has owned the building.
NAWG will be moving Jan. 4 and plans to announce its new location next month.
