Membership

This is an exciting time to be a member of the Agribusiness Council of Indiana (ACI)!  We have recently unveiled a new strategic plan and are engaging through our four committees and membership every day to advance that plan. Through our detailed Strategic Plan and the work of our various committees, we are diligently engaging every day to advocate for you our members.  We also are keenly focused on strengthening our membership outreach as well as our engagement with a variety of industry partners.  The benefits of ACI membership are clear:

  • Legislative and regulatory monitoring and representation for our agribusiness members by a team of registered lobbyists at the Indiana State House and key state agencies;
  • Representation with our national affiliates (including CropLife America, The Fertilizer Institute, American Seed Trade Association, Ag Retailers Association, Biotechnology Industry Organization, National Grain and Feed Association, and American Feed Industry Association);
  • An annual trade show and annual meeting each year giving all of our members the opportunity to network with other professionals and view all of the latest in equipment and technology for the industry;
  • Educational programs and training on issues most critical to our industry;
  • Timely and current e-news communications on association activities and critical issues;
  • Support for the next generation of agribusiness leaders through ACI's three Foundation scholarships;
  • Networking opportunities in a more relaxed setting, including golf outings and football tailgate events;
  • A political action committee to ably support local candidates working to advance our most critical issues;
  • A fully staffed office to serve all of your industry needs;
  • And personal attention to issues that matter most to you.

​We welcome your comments and active participation in ACI, its programs and key initiatives.  We would encourage members to consider serving on any of our committees - they include Membership Engagement, Policy, Education, and Events. Please know that the ACI management team of Ice Miller LLP and KAWaggoner Management Group are available at any time to assist and service your needs. The contacts are:
