The North Carolina Soybean Producers Association is governed by a board of 30 farmer-directors, a team of four officers, and North Carolina’s ASA director and two USB directors. Directors are elected to represent counties grouped by roughly equal soybean production volume. Directors serve three-year terms and officers serve one-year terms. Business meetings are conducted three times annually and by the Executive Committee on other occasions.
