Accounting organization co-hosts regional meeting

WMU’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (Gamma Rho), an honorary organization for financial information students and professionals, co-hosted the organization’s 2012 Midwest Regional Meeting on April 13-14, in Chicago, Ill. Members Alex DiBartolomeo and Justin Smith presented on “Developing Leadership Skills.” Other members assisted in organizing volunteers.

A record number of candidates have joined the chapter during Spring 2012, and  membership has increased from 58 members in 2010-2011 to 65 members in 2011-2012. Weekly meetings highlight presentations from firms and companies, STAR interview training, mock interviews, and panel discussions with members who have had internships and taken the Certified Public Accountant exam. The chapter also participates in numerous volunteer activities, including the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission, Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life.
