There are seven chapter advocates (CAs) who serve on the Chapter Advocacy Council (CAC). Each CA is an advocate for an assigned region or regions for three years. Each year, 3rd year CAs rotate off the CAC and rotate onto the board of directors.
The CAs' primary responsibilities are to attend and coordinate specified regional meetings and to attend all board and chapter advocate meetings, where the CA serves as the voice of the chapters. They also support faculty advisors and offer assistance/encouragement to chapters with special circumstances, such as chapters on probation, petitioning chapters, and chapters in danger of going on probation.
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.
