The 33rd Annual Independent Professional Seed Association (IPSA) Conference was held January 24-26, 2022 in Indianapolis, IN. The three-day meeting included the IPSA Business Meeting, business management seminars, educational workshops, eight keynote speakers and presentation of the scholarship winners.
The three day meeting concluded with the passing of the gavel ceremony, naming Chris Cornelius the 2022 IPSA President. Chris is the third female president since IPSA's beginning in 1989. In 2013, Chuck Cornelius served as president, making Chuck and Chris the first husband-wife duo to serve as IPSA Presidents.
IPSA represents more than 100 seed companies from more than 25 states, Canada and Mexico.
The Independent Professional Seed Association was formed in 1989 by a group of seedsmen who recognized the need for an organization to represent the unique needs of independent seed companies. The Association addresses research and biotechnology issues and increases the media presence of the industry in an increasingly competitive and dynamic business climate.
