The membership base is the core of the Kansas Soybean Association (KSA). KSA relies on its farmer-members for policy input and implementation. Greater membership strengthens KSA’s policy-implementation efforts when working with elected officials and regulators.
Corporate partners are keenly aware of the importance of KSA membership. They participate with KSA in our recruiting efforts by providing a wide range of incentives for soybean farmers who join.
Checkoff dollars cannot be used for lobbying. KSA dues ($70 per year or three years for $190) and KSA corporate partnerships provide funds to work on issues and legislation favorable to soybean profitability with elected officials and regulators in Washington, D.C., and Topeka.
