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.
