About ISA's Advocate Membership

By law, no checkoff dollars can be used to fund legislative activities. Your paid Advocate Membership empowers the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) to positively influence policy and regulatory matters impacting the U.S. soybean industry. We leverage your non-checkoff investment with additional partnerships to engage at the state and federal level to enhance the competitiveness of your farm. 

ISA’s policy is developed by and for the membership. Learn more about our policies and the work we are doing on your behalf.
