The mission of the Kansas Soybean Association (KSA) is to serve as the voice and advocate for soybean-farmer members on policy issues in Topeka and Washington, D.C. The goal of KSA is to implement state and national policies that support our farmers’ profit potential. The grassroots policy effort deals with issues brought by members, discussed and modified at the KSA Annual Meeting, and implemented by farmer-volunteers and staff under the direction of the KSA Board of Directors.
KSA is affiliated with the American Soybean Association (ASA) and works closely with ASA on national and international policy issues in Washington, D.C. At the state level, the Association is a member of the Kansas Agricultural Alliance.
The purpose of policy resolutions is to assist the KSA Board and staff in representing soybean farmers’ interests on many types of issues in Topeka and Washington, D.C. Please review the resolutions to acquaint yourself with the organization’s existing positions. The Annual Meeting includes the official approval of those policies.
Policy changes and additions come from the members. A member resolution can (A) modify an existing resolution, (B) delete an existing resolution or (C) add a new resolution. KSA staff members are willing to assist as necessary in helping members draft proposed resolutions. Please submit any proposals for consideration at the 2018 Annual Meeting to the Kansas Soybean office by January 1, 2018.
