Kentucky Soybean Association Directors

The Kentucky Soybean Association board is composed of producers, elected by the members, to represent the soybean producing areas of the Commonwealth. The number of Directors an area has is based on the membership in that area. There is a maximum of four directors per area. Each director is elected to a three year term. Directors are eligible to serve three terms, for a maximum of nine years, on a voluntary (unpaid) basis. In the case of early retirement of a director, the newly elected director will finish the term before beginning his/her first term.
