Students presented to a board of judges from the Midwest region about the chapter’s mentoring program. The presenters were Taylor Ladouceur, Megan Brainard and Katelynn Hufgard, all senior accounting majors, and graduate student Bryan Haas.
John Rose, faculty advisor for Beta Alpha Psi, said that participating in this type of competition is beneficial for members in many ways. “It gives them momentum, and it gives them motivation to keep presenting their ideas to the national group. It also gives them a sense of purpose to say that they did something good for the organization.”
A new set of presenters will compete in Atlanta at the Beta Alpha Psi Annual Meeting in August against all of the regional competition winners.
Beta Alpha Psi is an international scholastic and professional fraternity for accounting, management, information systems and finance major students and professionals. “To have Beta Alpha Psi on your resume helps distinguish yourself for recruiters to see but to be in that group you have to be active,” said Rose. “The group requires community service hours, as well as professional hours; that mean going to our meetings and listening to our speakers.”
