Annual Meeting 2020
6 August 2020
On Thursday 6th of August, the Beta Alpha Psi Annual Meeting was presented virtually to over 1000 participants worldwide. The meeting included keynote presentations from US Olympic Gold Medallist Laurie Hernandez, and Surgent Professional Development Senior Director Ryan Hirsch.
Along with the keynote presentations, a highlight of the meeting is the recognition of the various awards and competitions that take place each year. We are excited to announce that this year, our chapter was honoured as a recipient of the KPMG Gold Challenge competition!
The award is presented to up to 10 chapters, with recipients representing the top 5% of BAP chapters worldwide. The application for Gold Challenge is in the form of a 5-minute video presentation from the chapter, explaining how they have gone above and beyond and thus demonstrate the qualities of a ‘Gold Chapter’.
Take a look at our video submission in the next tile below!

Best Practice Results 2020
We are excited to announce the results of Beta Alpha Psi’s 2020 Best Practice Competition, with two Xi Epsilon teams placing in the top three of their category in the Oceania region!
The Best Practice competition, normally presented at the Annual Regional Meeting, provides the opportunity for students to develop and implement an activity which will benefit their chapter or community. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, teams were required to submit a video format of their presentations, which were judged by a panel of board and professional partner members.
The 2020 Best Practice topics included Innovation, Engagement and Impact. As a result of their efforts, our teams achieved outstanding results of 1st place in Impact and 3rd place in Innovation!
A huge congratulations is in order for all of our participants. We are extremely proud of their efforts and the initiatives they have created as a result. We know their hard work will have a lasting impact into the future on both members of the chapter and the wider community!

We were fortunate enough to have Josh Farr from Campus Consulting as our keynote speaker. We gained massive insights and new perspectives into leadership as he shared 6 Leadership Lessons to Leave a Legacy. Josh challenged everyone to look beyond traditional pathways of our careers, step out of our comfort zones and aim for opportunities which align with our values.
