7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Now, more than ever before, the voice from home carries more weight with today’s Congressional
representatives and we want to give a face to the seed industry. But we can’t do this without your help
and participation. Our goal is to have representatives from every U.S. state participate.
One of ASTA’s strategic goals is to provide effective leadership on domestic policy and funding issues
important to the U.S. seed industry. On June 20, we’re going to storm the Hill and make sure the story of
the American seed industry is heard. This is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
The ASTA team will develop talking points for you, provide a two-hour training the morning of and set
up a meeting time with your elected officials. All you have to do is show up and make your voice heard.
