BAP hosted 18 professional meetings, inviting local accounting firms or organizations to present virtually on topics that help the members grow and develop professionally and prepare for their careers after college. A select group of 10 members also attended the BAP Mid-year virtual meeting and heard presentations on a range of topics from setting career goals to changes to the CPA exam. Two teams of three members also prepared presentations based on the following topics: “Member Engagement Tactics for these Unprecedented Times” and “How You Complete Service Projects Virtually or Socially Distanced” and presented virtually to those in attendance.
Some of the most important work that BAP engaged in was the service they provided to the surrounding community. Even during the pandemic, they were able to serve others in a variety of ways. BAP partnered with Junior Achievement of Greater South Carolina to promote financial literacy in local elementary and middle schools. They also wrote letters to local residents at the Clemson Downs Retirement and Assisted living facilities to help ease the isolation many felt during the pandemic, and volunteered with Color a Smile to provide cheerful drawings to the elderly and our troops overseas. At the end of the spring semester, they held an on campus food drive to collect donations for the Paw Pantry, an on campus organization that helps students facing food insecurity, and they assisted their peers by providing virtual tutoring to students in certain introductory accounting and finance classes.
BAP had an incredibly successful year, and we look forward to seeing what they do in the future!
