Time is running out for Hoosier soybean farmers interested in serving on the Indiana Soybean Alliance board of directors. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2015. Representing Indiana soybean farmers, the ISA Board of Directors is responsible for the investment of the state’s soybean checkoff funds.
To be eligible to run, Hoosier farmers must sign a Director Expectation Statement and submit an Indiana Soybean Leader Profile form. Download the form at www.indianasoybean.com/elections or call the soybean office at 317-644-2791. Completed paperwork must be postmarked or submitted electronically by March 31, 2015.
ISA has four voting districts in the state and farmers elected to the 24-member board of directors will serve a three-year term. ISA is seeking candidates to fill two open seats in each of the four districts.
Candidates for the ISA Board are required to have been engaged in the growing of soybeans in Indiana in the last two years. Candidates must certify that they own the soybeans or share the ownership and risk of loss of the soybeans.
Voting will take place in July by mailed ballots. Those farmers elected in July will begin serving on the ISA board of directors in December 2015.
