INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 18, 2019) — The Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) seeks farmer leaders to join a 24-member board that is responsible for annually investing Indiana soybean checkoff funds in biofuels, livestock production, grain marketing, environmental research, new uses, aquaculture programs and more.

The ISA Board of Directors represents nearly 24,000 soybean farmers in Indiana who contribute their dollars through the checkoff program, and it manages soybean farmer investments. Applications for the 2019 election are due by March 8. This year, the ISA seeks at least two candidates for each of its four districts. Each candidate must meet these requirements:

  • Grower of soybeans for each of the last two years
  • Certify ownership or share ownership and risk of loss of soybeans
  • Completes a director expectation statement and returns it to ISA by March 8, 2019

 

To learn more about serving as an ISA director, or to receive a director expectation statement, call 1-800-735-0195 or go online to www.indianasoybean.com/elections

 

The ISA will distribute election ballots to soybean farmers by mail in June 2019. ISA will announce election results by late July 2019.

 

The Indiana Soybean Alliance works to enhance the viability of Indiana soybean farmers through the effective and efficient investment of soybean checkoff funds and the development of sound policies that protect and promote the interest of Indiana soybean farmers. The ISA is working to build new markets for soybeans through the promotion of biodiesel, livestock, grain marketing, aquaculture, new soybean uses, and research. ISA is led by an elected farmer board that directs investments of the soybean checkoff funds on behalf of more than 28,000 Indiana soybean farmers and promotes policies on behalf of the ISA’s 800 dues-paying members.
