Beta Alpha Psi Mu Zeta Chapter Named Gold Chapter

Mu Zeta is a Gold Chapter

The Valdosta State University Beta Alpha Psi - Mu Zeta Chapter was recognized as one of 12 Gold Chapters at the annual meeting held from August 8-10, 2013 in Anaheim, Ca.  This placed the chapter in the top 4% of all Beta Alpha Psi chapters and demonstrated that we go above and beyond what is expected of most chapters.  In order to become a Gold Chapter, Mu Zeta had to meet the following requirements;

  • Been a Superior Chapter for school year 2012
  • Been a Superior Chapter for school year 2013
  • Participated in a regional meeting, either as a meeting host/co-host, chapter operations presenter or Best Practices competitor 
  • Participate in the 2013 Annual Meeting in Anaheim, CA, either as a meeting host/co-host, chapter operations presenter or Best Practices competitor 

The KPMG Foundation sponsors the KPMG Gold Challenge Competition. The competition lets BAP students put their multimedia skills to use by creating a 7-minute video that explains and/or demonstrates why their chapter deserves the award.
