Director Listing

ISA is governed by a board of volunteer farmer-directors elected by the state membership. Two directors are elected from each crop reporting district. Members also vote for four at-large directors. The 22 directors meet throughout the year to develop policies and programs.

Iowa also has six farmers who serve as national directors on the American Soybean Association’s board of directors, four who serve on the United Soybean Board and one farmer representative who serves on the National Biodiesel Board.

Bill Shipley, President

District 7

Bill Shipley of Nodaway grows soybeans, corn and hay with his wife and son on their southwest Iowa farm in Adams and Montgomery Counties. He has three children, three grandchildren and holds an associate’s degree in ag business from South Western Community College.

Protecting our natural resources is of high priority to the Shipley family and the farm is exclusively no till — a conservation practice they began implementing more than three decades ago. Throughout his presidency, Shipley will also work extensively alongside the board in an effort to bring long-term financing for water quality efforts to fruition.
