The Missouri Hemp Association LLC has created a reduced-cost membership for individuals who are already members of other agriculture-related organizations. If an individual is a member of any other membership-based organization in the agriculture industry, they can get a limited membership to the MHA for $185 annually.
Affiliate members will be a part of MHA’s “One Voice” program, which is their effort to join the various hemp-related associations across the nation to speak with one voice at state and national levels to help farmers and the industry as a whole. Affiliate members also receive dual membership through MHA’s partnership with the U.S. Hemp Growers Association. Through this partnership, all MHA members also become members of the USHGA.
All membership benefits are included with the affiliate membership, excluding free access to MHA events and the complimentary access to the VISPS Marketing system. To access these perks, individuals will have to join at the full membership rate of $395.
In addition to the affiliate membership, the MHA has also created a three-year membership option for growers. A three-year grower membership is $595, saving growers $590. The three-year membership option is available for a limited time during the first year of the Native Prairie Research Hemp Subdivision, an opportunity for MHA members to learn about hemp production hands-on while limiting risk. The three-year membership is available from now until August 4th of this year.
