The national organization was organized in March 1979 under Draft Bylaws. PAS was officially founded in March 1980 in Kansas City, Missouri. PAS of Iowa was originally called Agricultural Career Training of Iowa (ACT) and was organized in 1979. It was later renamed to the Iowa Postsecondary Agricultural Students Organization and has celebrated over 30 years of growth and success. Membership is comprised of student members from two year community colleges and four year colleges and universities throughout the state of Iowa.

National PAS activities are available to approximately 8000 students from 42 Chapters located in 12 states.
