- ASTA, Capitol Hill, Indiana, Policy & Leadership Development Conference, RiceTec, Storm the Hill
On June 12-13, more than 100 ASTA members participated in the annual “Storm the Hill” lobbying event, held in conjunction with ASTA’s Policy & Leadership Development Conference (PLDC) in Washington D.C.. Over the course of two days, ASTA members attended more than 170 meetings on Capitol Hill with Senators, Representatives and staff to discuss the important issues affecting agriculture and the seed industry.
At the PLDC Gala Banquet on June 13, ASTA presented two “Storm the Hill” awards. Indiana was given the award for the state with the most representation at the event. A coalition from RiceTec received the award for the best photo from Capitol Hill.
