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 with the American Soybean Association to protect your interests.

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.

Your membership in the NC Soy Alliance automatically includes your complimentary annual membership in the American Soybean Association (ASA) and all ASA member benefits. With this program, you will now be receiving 2 memberships for the price of 1!

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.

Individual Membership:
Annual membership in NCSA & ASA: $100
