The Outstanding Faculty Advisor award presented up to five faculty advisors who go above and beyond the requirements of a faculty advisor. Not only are the recipients of the Outstanding Faculty Advisor award recognized in front of their chapter and their peers, but they also receive a plaque and a $5,000 cash award in recognition of their achievements.
In 2020, Professor Mezzio was awarded with the Outstanding Faculty Advisor award for his contributions to the success of our chapter and his substantial contributions to the professional growth and development of business financial information students.
Beta Alpha Psi recognizes that many chapters often go above and beyond what is required to become a Superior Chapter. In an effort to reward these chapters, the KPMG Foundation sponsors the KPMG Gold Challenge Competition. The competition lets BAP students put their multimedia skills to use by creating a 5-minute video that explains and/or demonstrates why their chapter deserves the award or why a top student would want to become part of the BAP organization.

Prior to the annual meeting, the NFP organizations will provide background information and will be on site Wednesday evening to answer the participating students' questions.
