Since becoming a candidate a few years ago, I have personally seen the rapid growth of our chapter. BAPPERs connect with firms all over the Tampa Bay area. Seeing the success is encouraging and invigorating. This culture started for me the first day sitting in front of Brent Caramanica. I watched our chapter develop our members. Unbelievable and unforgettable students, faculty and professionals have helped propel the Lambda Beta Chapter to its flourishing position.
Transitioning into our next exciting year, we have retained 47 members with 56 candidates striving to take the oath. My board is brand new and ready to take the plunge. We are working in new ways to create the most opportunities for our BAPPERS. Our top priority is to connect our members and candidates with anyone and everyone in the Tampa Bay Business world. My experience in BAP has been everything I could have asked for, from role models and mentors to opportunities and experiences. Anyone in the Lambda Beta Chapter will be afforded the same.
During the 2015-2016 academic year, the Lambda Beta chapter has made tremendous strides organizationally, professionally and philanthropically. Not only are we an organization with students of the highest caliber, but we are an organization that helps develop students into young professionals.
The organization had a successful year with recognition in many areas. For the first time in several years, the chapter sent two teams to the Best Practices Competition at the regional meeting, winning 1st and 2nd place and beating out schools from universities throughout the Southeast United States. The 1st place team, which headed to the national meeting, competed and won 2nd place in Deloitte's Best Practices Competition. The Lambda Beta Chapter also won Ernst & Young's Inclusive Leadership Award and Grant Thornton's Ethics Award. Again, UT's chapter was named a superior chapter, and ascended to gold chapter status by winning KPMG's Gold Challenge.
