The American Seed Trade Association today welcomed Stan Barrett as the new Director of Membership and Education Services. Barrett has more than 20 years of experience in association membership management, including positions at the U.S. Grains Council and the Snack Food Association.

"Our association's membership is very broad and diverse, making the right fit for this position extremely important," ASTA President and CEO Andy LaVigne said. "We are pleased have added someone with Stan's knowledge of and experience in the agriculture industry to be part of the ASTA team."

As Director of Membership and Education Services, Barrett is responsible for the strategic direction and management of membership development, retention and recruitment. He will also be charged with creating new, targeted education programs for the association's membership and managing the relationships with ASTA's membership.

"After a short time away, I'm very happy to be back in the food and agriculture family," Barrett said. "I look forward to the wonderful opportunity to advocate for and represent the seed industry in my new role."

Most recently at the Industrial Research Institute, Barrett led member recruitment and retention programs for the 200-member trade association. He promoted IRI and acted as the key representative during official meetings and events. Barrett also acted as the staff liaison to the U.S. Government Federal Laboratory member committee.

Barrett, who began his career in agriculture at the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service, holds a Master's degree in Agricultural Economics from Texas A&M University.
