We are working towards becoming an Superior chapter for the 2011-2012 school year.  In order to obtain this, we will work to participate in a minimum of:

  • 8 Reaching Out Activities (Annual Mtg, Mid-year Mtg, joint mtgs with other chapters)
  • 6 Professional Activities (guest speaker meetings, etc.)
  • 1 Service Activity (Habitat for Humanity, Adopt a Highway, etc.)

To qualify as a superior or distinguished chapter, there are also individual member/candidate professional and service hour requirements.  These requirements are designed to encourage involvement of Beta Alpha Psi members and candidates in professional and community service activities, not only as a chapter but also individually.  They can be obtained by participating in chapter activities and by earning hours on individual projects.  Each individual must complete at least the following each semester: 

  • 6 Hours of Professional Activities (guest speaker meetings)
  • Hours of Service Activities (Food Bank, Adopt a Highway)
  • 16 total hours of Professional and Service Activities*

 

    *Fill in the 4 hour gap with either additional service hours or NON-BAP hours.
