U.S. Soybean Export Council Seats 2024/2025 Board of Directors

During its annual meeting held today in Houston, the U.S. Soybean Export Council seated its new Board of Directors for 2024/2025, in advance of Commodity Classic, America’s largest farmer-led and farmer-focused agricultural event. 

USSEC’s board comprises 15 members of various stakeholders across the U.S. Soy value chain. Four members each are from the American Soybean Association (ASA) and the United Soybean Board (USB), and seven seats represent U.S. Soy trade, industry and state organizations. 

Lance Rezac, a farmer from Onaga, Kan., and USB representative on the board, was elected chair for a 12-month term. Rezac and his wife grow soybeans, corn, wheat, alfalfa, native hay, brome, and hay. Additionally, he runs a farrow-to-finish swine operation and raises beef cattle with his brother, son and daughter. 

“I’m honored to serve the 500,000+ U.S. soybean farmers in this capacity, working to help differentiate the quality and value of U.S. Soy from other nutrition and energy products in international export markets while collaborating with partners across the value chain,” Rezac shares. “Being a part of the USSEC leadership and seeing the work that’s done globally on behalf of U.S. Soy is not only humbling but demonstrates the importance of continuing to grow and consistently provide a high quality, sustainable source of soybeans to buyers around the world.”
