The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) is a farmer-led organization leading efforts in soybean research, in the expansion of soybean market opportunities, and as an information resource to farmers and the public. Lead by an elected volunteer board of 21 farmers, ISA is one of the nation’s most progressive and innovative agricultural organizations. ISA strives to make soybean production a profitable, innovative and environmentally safe way to farm because the association believes in agriculture and its provision of food and fuel as essential human activities.
What makes ISA unique is the strong commitment of its staff. In return, the association offers a state-of-the-art workplace, a generous benefits package, a wellness program, professional improvement opportunities and a number of group activities throughout the year.
“There is a sense of importance here because we're working for individuals who produce an Iowa product that is crucial to the global marketplace.”
