This past year has been an exciting time to be
involved with the Lambda Beta Chapter! A year ago, we started with a
stable chapter. We now find ourselves in a position to compete with
schools much larger for the same jobs and internships. Jimmy Hanna,
former President, and Nick Brunner, former Executive Vice President,
were determined to undergo a major culture change and take Beta Alpha
Psi to the next level. Through the buy-in of the Executive Board, and
maintaining a constant focus on our members, they were able to make a
huge difference within our chapter.
year, we concluded with 85 members actively participating in our many
service and professional events. In addition, we made a very successful
trip to Orlando to compete in the Beta Alpha Psi Regional Best Practices
Competition, placing first in the Strategic Planning topic. By
year-end, we had strong placement of our outstanding members with
outstanding firms to start their careers.
I told my board when I was elected back in March that the successes
that they had seen in the past 8 months were great, but I was going to
set the bar higher for this upcoming Fall semester as well. As you read
through our newsletter, I hope you find the passion that my board shares
and see that our focus will continue to be on taking our chapter to the
next level and making waves within the competitive southeast region.
