Ann Arbor, MI
Theme: Embracing the Opportunity

The beautiful city of Ann Arbor will host the Midwest Regional Meeting for Beta Alpha Psi! There is a little something for everyone from music, art, sports and more. The Regional Meeting is an excellent opportunity for students to optimize their Beta Alpha Psi involvement in professional development through guest speakers, group activities, networking with like-minded students and professionals in the Midwest region, Chapter Operations, and the Best Practices competition.

The meeting includes keynote speakers, as well as sessions on chapter operations, professional skills, and current issues within financial information. Sponsored by Deloitte, the Best Practices competition is the hallmark of regionals and is an excellent opportunity to further develop critical thinking, fine-tune public speaking skills and discover new ways to improve chapter operations. The deadline to submit Best Practices abstracts is Friday, January 26, 2018, by 4 PM CST. For chapters who wish to present in Chapter Operations, the deadline to submit the Chapter Operations Abstract Cover Page form is Friday, January 26, 2018. 

From the start, it is truly an exciting and exhilarating process to collaborate as a chapter with the objective to win. The Kappa Beta chapter of Beta Alpha Psi is proud to host this year’s regional meeting and we look forward to seeing you!

Cardz for Kidz 

Back by popular demand, we will be providing students, faculty advisors and professional partners the opportunity to participate in  Cards for Kidz, an organization that provides hospitalized and traumatized children homemade, inspiring cards.  In 2017, Beta Alpha Psi achieved Gold Status with Cards for Kidz, thanks to everyone's creativity at the regional meetings and annual meeting.  We are only a handful of cards short of Platinum Status- help us attain this 2018 goal! 

A table will be set up in the registration area for attendees to stop by at their leisure to create an uplifting card.  All cards will be sent to a Cards for Kidz participating hospital. To learn more about Cards for Kidz, please click here.

Beta Alpha Psi will provide paper, scissors, glue and markers.  We are asking that attendees bring supplies to enhance their cards.  To see a list of recommended supplies from Cards for Kidz, please click here.
