Thinking about joining the Missouri Agribusiness Association?
Let us tell you what MO-AG can do for you.
NOTE: Dues to MO-AG are not deductible as a charitable contribution but can be deducted as an ordinary and necessary business expense. However, 30% is not deductible as MO-AG engages in industry lobbying.
Legislative Representation & Regulatory Assistance
Although there are many reasons to join MO-AG, the most important are the legislative representation and regulatory assistance. MO-AG is your voice in Jefferson City and Washington D.C., and works with government agencies and regulators on your behalf.
MO-AG keeps you in touch through numerous networking opportunities including regional meetings, committee meetings, and various educational seminars.
MO-AG Keeps You “In the Know”
MO-AG offers an e-newsletter, the MO-AG Minute, which offers up-to-date news and info you need to know for your business. From legislative issues to meeting information, the latest guidance on important topics of interest, webinars, social media posts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), and much more. Stay in the know, and never miss a beat!
MO-AG partners with G. Phillips & Sons to pick up material for recycling sized 55 gallons or smaller.
Jim Russell Foundation
In 1983, MO-AG set up the foundation, which was later renamed the Jim Russell Foundation in 2008 to honor Mr. Jim Russell, former executive director, long-time supporter, and a leader of MO-AG. The Jim Russell Foundation provides scholarships to college agriculture students and donates to agriculture education organizations such as Agriculture Future of America (AFA), Agricultural Leaders of Tomorrow (ALOT), 4H, and others. The Jim Russell Foundation also hosts a Jim Russell Foundation auction at our annual meeting. All proceeds from the auction benefit the foundation.
Regulatory Compliance Services (Asmark)
MO-AG offers regulatory compliance services through Asmark. MO-AG and the Asmark Institute partner to help you navigate the regulatory maze. If you find that government regulations are demanding more of your time, we can help. Compliance efforts can be streamlined leaving you to what you do best – running your business. Asmark’s proven system simplifies the regulatory compliance process. By increasing efficiency we can help control the costs associated with compliance. Asmark addresses the regulatory requirements in a common-sense manner – producing positive results and yielding peace of mind.
