ASA Soy Social and Auction

TOUCHDOWN! GOING ALL THE WAY FOR SOYBEANS
The American Soybean Association (ASA) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the ASA SoyPAC and the 10th anniversary of the Annual Soy Social and Auction. During these 10 years, the Soy Social and Auction has been very successful in scoring touchdowns for soybean producers. At the 2015 Commodity Classic, ASA and supporters will huddle up again for the 10th annual Soy Social and Auction, presenting the 2015 theme “Touchdown! Going All the Way for Soybeans.”
Every year, with our tremendous industry and state support, the Soy Social and Auction continues to be a highlight of Commodity Classic. ASA is asking you to join our team and be our “12th Man” by sponsoring one of the many activities and donating an item for the live and/or silent auction on Thursday, February 26, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Contribute to SoyPAC
The American Soybean Association’s political action committee is called SoyPAC. Any ASA member may make a contribution to SoyPAC, which provides ASA with the resources to give appropriate support to legislators who champion soybean farmer priorities and policies that protect and increase the market value and opportunities for soybean growers.
Federal legislation and regulations on things like biodiesel, transportation, trade, energy, taxes and agriculture research directly affect soybean farmer profitability. Through SoyPAC, ASA is able to support those legislators who understand agriculture and support soybean issues, and to help ensure that legislators with less agricultural knowledge will listen to ASA and help advocate issues in a way that benefits soybean farmers.
