Accounting

Western Washington University's chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the National Accounting Honor Society, again achieved national recognition as a "Superior Chapter." Our chapter (undergraduate accounting students) has consistently achieved Superior Status each year because of its high commitment to national and regional activity, professional and community involvement. At the Beta Alpha Psi Regional Meeting at Oregon State University in April 2002, WWU's Beta Alpha Psi won first place in the International Presentation Competition for a presentation on Doing Business in the Czech Republic, as well as the Best Practices Award for its many innovative activities. In addition, Western's accounting students continue to supply the majority of the volunteer hours for TaxAide (volunteer income tax assistance), which provided approximately 1,500 hours of free taxpayer assistance during the tax filing season, including free electronic filing of tax returns.
