Each year several members attend the Texas Section ASAE meeting, Southern Region Student Branch meeting, the national ASAE Meeting, and the ASAE ¼ Scale Tractor Competition. The Ag Systems Management club is a wonderful place to start building a strong professional background in the technical management field.
