TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas Soybean Commission plans to meet March 8, 2021 in Topeka, Kansas. The meeting begins at 8 a.m.
On the agenda for this meeting, commissioners plan to review budget changes granted on research projects, review fiscal audits, receive program and organizational updates and more.
The two Commissioner-at-large positions are to be appointed at the meeting as well. Refer to this news release for details on this appointment. Because no candidates submitted petitions, the commissioners also will appoint a commissioner for Districts 1, 2 and 3 in the western third of the state.
The commissioners may go into executive session to discuss confidential, contractual matters.

The Commission and its partner organizations have celebrated many successes since the December KSC meeting. Chairman Bob Haselwood shared the Commission’s annual fiscal report with the Kansas House and Senate Agriculture Committees in January. He highlighted many of the projects made possible through the $3.9 million invested by the Commission, including the Kansas Commodity Flow Market Development task force. This collaboration with other groups in the state aims to evaluate and improve upon commodity transportation and infrastructure across the state.
