North Carolina Soybean Producers Association is now offering a new membership program:
NC Soy Alliance
Many decisions affecting your profitability and your freedom to operate are made by people who have never stepped foot on a farm. When policy and regulations that affect soybean farmers are being debated on Capitol Hill, the NC Soy Alliance will be there to protect your interests with the American Soybean Association.
The NC Soy Alliance is a voluntary membership program focused on policy and advocacy for the interest of the soybean farmer. Membership in NC Soy Alliance is above and beyond the basic, no-cost membership offered by N.C. Soybean Producers Association to all N.C. soy growers.
Membership in the NC Soy Alliance automatically includes your complementary annual membership in the American Soybean Association (ASA) and all ASA member benefits. With our new membership program, you will now be receiving 2 memberships for the price of 1!
Beginning in October 2016, ASA memberships are available only through state affiliates like the NC Soy Alliance.
North Carolina growers who have unexpired and lifetime ASA memberships will receive equivalent credit towards NC Soy Alliance membership
Annual membership in NCSA & ASA: $100
