Congratulations to our Inaugural Dean of the Year Winner: Dr. Faye Gilbert
Dr. Faye Gilbert, from the University of Southern Mississippi plays an active role in developing BGS members as students and professional leaders. Dean Gilbert shepherded USM’S BGS chapter through its first formal tapping ceremony. Under her leadership, USM sent members to the leadership conferences in San Diego and Orlando in 2015, then helped organize a leadership seminar on campus to “share the wealth.” And speaking of sharing the wealth, Gilbert has found ways to fund membership fees for invitees who need financial help. She has also found matching funds for students to attend the leadership conferences. A true champion for Beta Gamma Sigma and its member community, Dr. Gilbert exemplifies the BGS mission in her work every day. Congratulations!
Chapter Spotlight: The University of Hong Kong
BGS Global HQ would like to recognize The University of Hong Kong chapter for a very successful, recent event. Members of the HKU chapter were able to experience a tour of LinkedIn’s Hong Kong offices. This visit provided an opportunity for members to make real world connections with industry professionals. Great job and thanks for sharing HKU!
If your chapter has planned or participated in an interesting event or if you have a best practice to share, please contact your Chapter Manager. Maybe you’ll be featured in an upcoming Chapter Spotlight!
