Chapter Operations Committees
All members, candidates, and apprentices are required to participate in a committee this semester. If you did not already sign up for a committee, please contact one of the officers to let them know which one you would like to join. Below is a description of each committee and corresponding sub-committees.
Community Service Committee
Members of this committee will assist the VP of Planning in the planning and execution of community service events. Each Beta Alpha Psi member is required to do a certain number of community service hours each semester, so it is essential that members are provided with enough opportunities to fulfill this requirement. Members of this committee will spend time searching for possible events and assisting in recording member participation at events.
Please contact VP of Planning, at [email protected].
Professional Activities Committee
The Professional Activities Committee will aid the VP of Professional Activities in the delivery and setup of food at our Professional Meetings on Thursdays and Saturdays. The committee will be responsible for escorting speakers from the parking lot to the meetings.
Please contact VP of Professional Activities, at [email protected].
Gold Challenge Committee
The Gold Challenge Committee will document our chapter’s events and community service. At the end of the semester they will compile the video and photos into a competitive video that will be submitted to Beta Alpha Psi Nationals.
Competition information can be found at https://www.bap.org/kpmg-gold-challenge-competition.
The Ethics Award seeks to encourage the members of Beta Alpha Psi and their communities to develop a solid ethical foundation and to empower them to act on these principles no matter the situation faced. Grant Thornton is proud to sponsor the Beta Alpha Psi Ethics award with up to $20,000 awarded annually.
Inclusive Leadership Committee
Are you an inclusive leader?
Success in today’s global marketplace means you need to be able to think, learn and act inclusively. Are you ready to help us build a better working world by leveraging the power of diverse perspectives?
This is your chance to show us you can make a meaningful impact by enhancing diversity and leading inclusively!
Best Practices Committee
Best practices are activities created and completed by a chapter to further specific goals identified by the board of directors of Beta Alpha Psi and by Deloitte LLP (Deloitte). These activities exemplify the spirit and purpose of Beta Alpha Psi and, if applicable, allow other chapters to emulate those activities.
Leadership and Management
Leadership and management are very different but both are critical to success. How does your chapter define Leadership and Management based upon your chapter philosophy? What has your chapter done in the past year to differentiate or combine the two traits into your chapter activities? How have you prepared your members for both? Finally, how does your chapter measure its success in promoting Management and Leadership? What take away can your chapter provide other chapters in this topic?
Alignment of Officer Activities
Each chapter needs to align performance, efforts and goals in order to lead the chapter effectively. This includes delegating through different activities such as professional, service and social activities. Provide the overall organizational structure for your chapter leadership and define the roles and responsibilities for each officer position. What forms of communication does your chapter use to avoid “working in silos”? Who is responsible for delegating responsibilities and why? How has your officer alignment changed or evolved over the past three years? What were some of the lessons learned from past mistakes? What were some of the successes? What is your chapter currently doing to keep your leadership/officer alignment dynamic?
Good or Great!
Sometimes the good can get in the way of great. What does your chapter do to evaluate their processes to avoid settling for good in order to strive to be great? BAP has been around since 1919. The organization, the mission and the scope has changed and will continue to change. This is why BAP remains one of the more prestigious student organizations within the US and Globally. Provide examples of what your chapter has done to venture outside of its comfort zone to include new and different ideas. Provide some examples that other chapters can benefit from. What has your chapter done to reach out to potential new members such as finance and IS majors? What review process has your chapter used to answer the question, “Are we good or are we great?” In the structure of your organization, what allows you to move forward?
