Milano Receives Beta Alpha Psi's President's Award


Bernard J. Milano, president and trustee of the KPMG Foundation, received Beta Alpha Psi’s President’s Award, the organization’s highest honor. Milano was BAP president from 1999 to 2000. Stephanie Bryant, director of the University of South Florida’s School of Accountancy and BAP’s 2007–2008 international president, presented the award during a lunch at the BAP national convention in Anaheim, Calif.

Bryant said that under Milano’s leadership, BAP broadened its scope beyond accounting students to include finance and information systems students and led the creation of the annual Community Service Day in which volunteer members work to improve towns and cities. Milano also helped find funding for BAP’s superior chapter model, which awards cash to chapters with high levels of volunteer and professional activity.

Beta Alpha Psi is an honorary organization for accounting and financial information students and professionals.
