Project Run with It (PRWI) furthers the community service component of Beta Alpha Psi and provides members/candidates with an opportunity to engage in a real-world consulting project.
PRWI 2014 will involve 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 area where the annual meeting is being held. Working in eighteen teams of four, the 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 in their request for proposal for consulting services. Prior to the annual meeting, the NFP organizations will provide background information and will be on site Wednesday evening to answer the participating students' questions.
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.
To participate in PRWI, students must submit a completed nomination form, statement of interest, and confidentiality agreement form. Students will be notified by the PRWI faculty coordinator as to whether or not they were selected between May 12 and May 15. Students not selected will be notified at the same time. Any student placed on the waitlist will be notified of their priority on the waitlist.
Once the participating students are identified and notified of their participation, each will be assigned to one of the three cases. Participants will be notified via email which case they have been assigned. Case information relevant to the issues being presented for the NFPs will be posted to a secure, password protected website, and will be made available to the participants.
