The 132nd Annual Convention convenes all sectors of the seed industry in Washington, D.C., June 17-20 for an unparalleled opportunity for seed industry advocacy.

The event begins with an opportunity to "Make Your Voice Heard" as you participate in ASTA's Storm the Hill efforts on the afternoon of June 17 and the morning of June 18. Join over 100 of your seed industry colleagues to advocate for the needs of your business and our industry with legislators and regulators. 

During the convention, you'll gain first-hand knowledge of the inner working of the democratic process as you learn about the legislative and regulatory issues facing the seed industry and agriculture, nationally and internationally. The convention also includes new twists on the traditional favorites among ASTA special events, including the 5K Fun Run, the Welcome Reception, Gala Banquet and opportunities for fun in the DC area for spouses and families. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to have ASTA guide you through the advocacy process and help shape the future of our industry.
