The American Soybean Association (ASA) has a new, five-year affiliation agreement that goes into effect on Oct. 1.

It's focused on the changes ASA made in its strategic plan, effecting membership and affiliate investment in ASA. Approximately one-third of the 26 soybean state associations signed the new agreement when the board of directors held its D.C. meeting last month.

The new strategic plan makes protecting and advancing soybean farmer issues paramount in national policy and regulatory areas. State associations will now have more flexibility when it comes to membership types and dues. States will also be able to invest in ASA in ways to better serve the individual state through the new affiliate investment structure.

ASA hopes to have all state associations signed into the new agreement within the next few months.
