Branch Officers

Student Branch Officers are elected in the November ASABE branch meeting. The late fall election was chosen to allow for a transition period between incoming and outgoing officers. The officers elected in November start their duties for the December meeting and continue through the spring. During the summer term the officers are generally less active, but begin their duties again in September, coinciding with the start of the academic year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Upon the completion of their terms all officers are responsible for submitting an organized binder recording all of their year’s activities.  The binder should include hard copies of all reports and soft copies of all files to assist the new officers with fluidity.
