ISA Leadership Calls For Member Donations to Help ...

The 2020 Iowa Seed Golf Tournament is canceled, leadership asks members to donate funds to support seed scholarships.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Iowa Seed Association (ISA) leadership has decided not to hold the 2020 Annual Golf Tournament in June. ISA plans to resume the tournament in June of 2021. As a member of the seed industry, you can make an impact on scholarship at Iowa State University this year. The unfortunate cancellation of our event presents an excellent opportunity for you to help students achieve their dreams.
