The Board establishes a program for chapter activities to serve as a guide and incentive for chapter competition. The goal of chapter activities is to involve all members fully in chapter affairs. Successful chapter operation requires participation by most members in attending meetings, serving on committees, participating in activities and striving for academic excellence.
All chapters are evaluated annually on their service to members, campus, community, and profession. Superior chapters are recognized each year at the Beta Alpha Psi's annual meeting.
Chapter activities are divided into categories according to: plan of activities and budget, initiations, professional programs, involvement in campus and professional activities, community service, and annual year-end report. Activities include speeches and panel discussions by students, faculty and professionals; field trips; business meetings; and a wide variety of professional, social, and service activities.
Employers of accounting, finance, business analytics or digital technology students are familiar with Beta Alpha Psi and its activities. It is understood that Beta Alpha Psi represents excellence and that its activities are designed to supplement a student's education.
The activities of student members include:
• attendance at chapter meetings, socials, and recruiting events,
• attendance at regional meetings, and
• attendance and participation at the annual meeting.
Beta Alpha Psi students represent the cream of the crop within their respective college/university! They will become the future leaders in the profession and help drive much needed change within their organizations. As the students become BAP alumni, we hope they stay engaged in professional associations and pursue certifications like the CMA to continue their life long learning.
