For the past 90 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.
