American Soybean Association
For the past 95 years, the American Soybean Association has met the demands of a growing world. The American soybean farmer has a tremendous opportunity to answer the call of agricultural needs throughout the world and ASA is the collective voice of 21,000 U.S. soybean producers.
A primary focus of the American Soybean Association is policy development and implementation. Policy development starts with the farmer/members and culminates at an annual meeting of voting delegates.
ASA is tasked with accomplishing the policy goals established by the farmers/members/delegates. ASA does this by testifying before Congress, lobbying Congress and the Administration, contacting members, and meeting with the media. This legislative process cannot happen without member input and support.
