IOA is working with Organic Farmers Association to deliver a 2019 Presidential Forum, “Combating Climate Change with Organic and Regenerative Agriculture," as part of the program.

Each candidate has been offered 2-3 minutes to share with the audience components of their agriculture platform that support regenerative and organic agriculture. Iowa Organic Farmers will ask candidates vetted questions about their policies—questions that get at the heart of the issues Iowa family farmers are facing throughout the state and representative of issues farmers face nationwide. 

We have invited all presidential candidates to attend and are in contact with several campaigns. 
We will keep you updated through eNews, Facebook and the website as details further develop.


Registration is CLOSED - we are at capacity.  The Annual Meeting is no-cost to members and $20 for non-members - the public is welcome to attend.    

It’s not too late to become a member!  Members will be recognized in the Annual Report; invited to the Annual Meeting; and receive reduced pricing for programs.  Join here.
