Announcing the 2018 Soybean Leadership College!

We hope you are planning to attend the 2018 Soybean Leadership College January 9 – 10, 2018! The two-day conference will provide agricultural industry leaders with training to effectively promote the soybean industry, communicate key agricultural messages and work to expand U.S. soybean market opportunities domestically and internationally while networking with growers from across the country.

New for 2018, ASA is partnering with Ag Leader Source on a session, “Serving as a leader in Today’s Agricultural Organizations,” designed to provide new state and national Board members with tools including strategic thinking and board member expectations. We are excited about opportunity to enrich our organizational effectiveness.

In addition to the Ag Leader Source session, the 2018 Soybean Leadership College will feature the following:

“The Big Picture – Agriculture looks at 2018”

– Matt Roberts, Ph.D., The Ohio State University

“A Tale of Two Soybean Organizations”

– A panel discussion featuring the grower leaders of both the American Soybean Association and United Soybean Board

“Who, What, Where, When and How – How to talk to (almost) anyone about agriculture”

– Alyson Perry, The Center for Food Integrity

Sessions on trade and sustainability will round out the program and you won’t want to miss our Wednesday evening event at the City Museum,! Visit to learn more and to register.
