As our world continues to change, BAP and it's chapters must move forward to adapt and reimagine our programs. This year's Best Practices challenges our chapters to reimagine how we keep Beta Alpha Psi's mission relevant.
Key points for all categories:
In an environment of unprecedented change, business as usual no longer applies. Hybrid environments, accelerated technology adoption, and increased mental health awareness have highlighted the need for inclusive leadership. People, Process and Technology are core organization pillars. However, as we anticipate lingering pandemic challenges, People remain the most critical element. New organizational partnerships are a great opportunity for Beta Alpha Psi chapters to expand their inclusive leadership for existing and prospective members.
Being able to effectively lead and collaborate with others in a changing world are essential skillsets.
In an environment of turmoil and uncertainty, leaders are called upon to assist those who need support. However, the support needed pre-pandemic is not the same support needed in today’s environment. The world around us has changed in both challenging and exciting ways. Identifying where BAP chapters can have maximum impact and influence requires an understanding of the day in the life of those less fortunate. For Beta Alpha Psi chapters, this is an opportunity to enhance and further develop personal and professional skills.
Reimagine community Service is a way to engage and support members, students, and the community in innovative and new ways even as BAP members enhance skillsets that are useful in many careers and fields.
The speed of change is only getting faster. In response, organizations of all sizes across industries have begun transformation initiatives to better engage customers, reduce cycle time, reduce risk, and generate increased revenue. New skills and greater technology capabilities are critical in organizations as they implement enhanced operational excellence and digital intelligence processes. Beta Alpha Psi members have an opportunity to reimage their career aspirations to take advantage of the many paths forward.
Seeking out information on trends and success stories of organizations are great ways to explore and identify new career opportunities.
WSCPA values our fellow membership organization for their key contributions and commitment to the accounting and finance professions. From community service projects and hours that aid their communities through initiatives like VITA, partner volunteer days, student peer tutoring, or financial education they demonstrate their commitment to advancing students, building networks and serving the community. All of these demonstrate the professionalism and inherent traits we see in our CPA community. Thanks for building the next generation of professional leadership!
