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’.
Oceania Best Practices Competition, New Zealand
20 - 22 April 2018
The international Best Practices Competition is sponsored by Deloitte each year with a global theme in which universities can nominate to present on three different topics. The 2018 theme was ‘Embracing the Opportunity’ and the topics were ‘Hands-on Engagement’, ‘Launching into the Next Century’ and ‘Branding Your Chapter’.
“This year’s competition was held at the Regional meeting in Wellington, New Zealand. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded students from across Australia and New Zealand. The aim of the weekend was not just to compete against one another but was to forge bonds, gain practical skills and engage with the community. We were fortunate enough to become close with students from University of Technology Sydney, University of Sydney, Deakin University, University of Melbourne, University of Auckland, University of Waikato and Victoria University of Wellington.
2017 Beta Alpha Psi Oceania Regional Meeting - Sydney

The Xi Epsilon Committee were fortunate enough to attend the Oceania Regional Meeting at the University of Sydney. As a new Chapter, the Committee focused on gaining further insight into the Honour Organisation itself, as well as achieving a greater understanding of the crutial role each Officer can play in the development of the Chapter.
The two day event included the Best Practices Competition, where our very own Chapter delivered an eight minute presentation on the Strategic Planning component of Beta Alpha Psi - specifically how the chapter had progressed since the previous year and what the Chapter's plans were for future years.
Speakers from top-tier accounting and consulting firms presented on a range of different topics, including management consulting and the future of accounting.
Over the course of the event the Committee were surrounded by like-minded, inspirational people and formed long-lasting friendships with peers from other Chapters.
