Project Run With It

Sponsored by Moss Adams LLP

Deadline EXTENDED: Monday, June 1, 2020 by 11:59 PM EST

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.

Just as there is a silver lining to every cloud, unusual times bring unusual opportunities. In this 13th Year of Project Run With It history, we have the good luck of being able to offer a unique Project Run With It experience.  Some chapters have not been able to participate previously due to other commitments or uncertainty about summer plans that leave students unable to make a firm commitment to participate.

This year, just as in prior years, student representatives will work together to develop solutions to real-life business problems of actual not-for-profit (NFP) organizations.  Due to the unique current restrictions on face-to-face meetings, PRWI will move to an online platform in 2020. Timing of the actual work will be considerably more flexible than prior years and there will not be a requirement to travel although registration for the Beta Alpha Psi annual meeting will still be required.

PRWI coordinators are currently reshaping project guidelines to retain the important elements that have made Project Run With It a life-changing experience that delivers value to deserving NFPs and student participants.  Details will be provided at this site at a minimum of two weeks prior to the new nomination deadline.
