ASA Awards Banquet Sold Out, Record Numbers Expected

American Soybean Association‘s (ASA) annual Awards Banquet is sold out! The annual dinner, sponsored by the United Soybean Board/Soy Checkoff, DuPont and Monsanto BioAg, brings together ASA members from across the country to recognize and celebrate successes, accomplishments and education of the many farmer-leaders, soybean associations and industry representatives who have done outstanding work to benefit the U.S. soybean farmers and industry.

Awards will be presented for ASA membership and association outstanding achievements, leadership building, conservation stewardship and industry accomplishments and support.

Entertainment this year will be provided by comedian, Jay Hendren, an Ohio farmer who draws from his experiences for some good-clean humor.

The banquet will be held on Friday, March 4, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. It is the sixth largest convention facility in the nation and consistently ranks as one of country’s top ten facilities. The annual banquet is a part of Commodity Classic 2016.

A very special thank you goes out to our sponsors United Soybean Board/Soy Checkoff, DuPont and Monsanto BioAg for making this event possible and for their continued support.
