One of the key ways ASA is able to raise funds for SoyPAC is through the Annual Soy Social & Auction. Each year, this is one of the most exciting and memorable events held at Commodity Classic.
The American Soybean Association’s (ASA) 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 topics 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. It also gives ASA the opportunity to reach out to key members of Congress in leadership positions to inform them of issues of importance to soybean farmers.
