Our Meetings

Meeting Activities


Meetings of the Iowa State University Student Branch of ASABE are held on alternating Tuesdays at 7:00 PM. During the fall semester, the meetings were held in the Sukup Atrium, and the meetings were located in 0022 Sukup during the spring semester. During the 2017-2018 school year, thirteen business meetings were held. The meetings are announced via e-mail to the list of club members, in addition to being posted around the Bio-Renewables Complex.

Meetings are semi-informal to encourage active participation from members. There is no dress code for members or speakers, however, a professional atmosphere is promoted by officers of the branch. Appropriate parliamentary procedures are required for the business portion. No academic credit is given for attending meetings of the ASABE Student Branch.
