As part of the 2022 Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) international annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, KPMG U.S. Foundation, Inc., KPMG LLP – University Talent Acquisition, and BAP are proud to announce the BAP Community Impact Day (CID) project. The event is in collaboration with the non-profit social enterprises, Heart of Florida United Way, First Book and The Pack Shack.

On Thursday, July 28th, some volunteers will visit local Boys & Girls Clubs in under-served neighborhoods to teach the children the importance of literacy in their lives. At the end of the day, each child will go home with a brand-new book. Since 2013, we have donated over 40,000 books and resources during our community impact events at the annual meetings.

In addition, some volunteers will participate in a Pack Shack Feed the Funnel Party where we will package 100,000 meals. These meals will be donated to the programs where we host our literacy events, local food banks, and the food pantries at local college campuses – to help combat food insecurity that exists amongst college students.

All BAP annual meeting attendees, except those students and faculty participating in Project Run With It, are expected to participate.

If you would like to participate but are unable to attend the Community Impact Day activities (due to health issues, late arrival, etc.), please email Cheyenne Mullins. There will be a service activity at the hotel – Operation Backpack – for you to do instead.

Volunteer roles for the Literacy Fairs will be assigned during the bus ride to each location. Roles you can choose from are:

Team Lead: Leads a group of children through each station at the Literacy Fair. Participates in the activities with them and makes sure they have an outstanding day.

Station Volunteer: Assists the children with activity at assigned station.

Book Station Volunteer: Organizes books, places bookplates and bookmarks in each book, and delivers books to each station for distribution at the close of the event. When books have been delivered to each station, these volunteers can then participate in the Literacy Fair as a Team or Station volunteer.

We are in need of volunteers for a few important roles – please sign up for these roles now by contacting the appropriate person below:

Photographers: We need photographers with their own camera (SDHC card to be provided) to take pictures during the day, including pictures of the children with a mascot at each location. If you enjoy taking pictures and would like to volunteer for this activity, please send an email to Mia Friederich.

Mascot Volunteers: Would you like to bring a bit of whimsy and fun to the event? Now’s your chance! Dress up like a tiger, elephant (with a pink tutu), frog, etc. If you are interested, please contact Mia Friederich.

Spanish Speaking Volunteers: Do you speak Spanish? We need volunteers who speak Spanish at one of our locations. If you would like to spend some time during the day speaking with the children in Spanish, please contact Mia Friederich.

Faculty Advisor Lead: We need BAP Faculty Advisors to serve as Leads at each Boys & Girls Club where we host a Literacy Fair. You will receive training prior to the event. If you are interested in this important leadership role, please contact Della Moore

Note: Lunch, transportation, and bottles of water will be provided.

Project Run With It (PRWI) furthers the community service component of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) and provides student participants with an incredible opportunity to engage in a real-world consulting project.

PRWI begins its 18th year! PRWI 2022 will involve up to 72 BAP student representatives working together during the Annual Meeting to develop solutions to real-life business problems of actual not-for-profit (NFP) organizations located in the greater Orlando, FL area. Working in teams of four, students will have the equivalent of one and half working days to develop a formal presentation showcasing their solution to the business issues presented by the NFPs. Prior to the Annual Meeting, the NFP organizations will provide background information to all participating students and will be on site to answer students' questions.

PRWI is a high intensity, highly compressed competition that provides participating students a unique experience. See the testimonials and recap video.

2022 Nonprofit Organizations



Each chapter represented on the first-place teams will receive a plaque (which will bear the name of the participating student and chapter) and a $1,000 cash award.


  • All current BAP members/candidates are eligible to participate. If more than the maximum number of participants are nominated, students will be selected to participate based on the following criteria: 
    1. Major (ideally we would like to have a mix of accounting, finance, and information system majors). Students with declared double majors should clearly indicate such on the nomination form. Up to 24 students with a declared major other than accounting will be selected.

    3. Grade point average 
    4. Statement of Interest 
    5. Number of students a chapter has nominated (no chapter will be selected for multiple participants unless fewer than 72 chapters submit acceptable nominees)

    7. Timeliness of nomination
    8. Regional allocation of students ultimately selected 
    9. An affirmative statement by the student of his/her ability to attend the annual meeting and be able to arrive in time for the opening kickoff session. 

Nomination Process

Nominations are open.

To participate in PRWI, students must submit a completed nomination form, statement of interest, confidentiality agreement form, and affirmative statement of attendance prior to rhe Annual Meeting signed by the Faculty Advisor.

Students will be notified as to whether or not thery were selected no later than May 15, 2022.

Students and chapter faculty advisors should carefully consider a student's availability prior to submitting a nomination. 

General Process

Once the participating students are identified and notified of their participation, each will be assigned to one of the cases and notified via email as to which case they have been assigned. Case information relevant to the issues being presented for the NFPs will be posted to a secure Dropbox folder, and will be made available to the participants upon selection and updated as needed prior to the July Meeting.   

Other Information

Students selected to participate in PRWI must arrive at the Annual Meeting hotel by Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at 4:30 pm EDT. Dinner will be served to participants and teams will be introduced at the opening session. It is important to note that students participating in PRWI will not be attending the Community Service Day on Thursday of the Annual Meeting but will be attending the kickoff plenary session Thursday evening and rejoin their chapters for other Annual Meeting events.
