BAP Rewards Problem-Solvers


Beta Alpha Psi members are getting an opportunity to gain some real-world experience and raise funds for their chapter.

“Project Run With It,” a case competition, will be held Aug. 7, during the BAP Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif.

The competition, sponsored by Moss Adams LLP, brings together students from 60 chapters to develop solutions to the financial and technological problems of three not-for-profit agencies.

The organizations provide background information and answer student questions. Then, the students, working in teams of four, have one day to develop possible solutions and present them to the agencies.

Each chapter can nominate one person to participate. Nomination forms, available at www.bap.org on Feb. 1, are due May 1. Then, the nominee must meet with a director of a local not-for-profit agency and submit a one-page essay summarizing the meeting and identifying how his or her BAP chapter can assist the organization.

Final choices will be based on service to BAP, grade-point average, the essay and a statement of commitment to attend the annual meeting. Students will be notified of their acceptance by July 1.

Each member of the winning team receives a plaque and a $1,000 award for his or her chapter.
