Collegiate Chapter Training

Collegiate Chapter Training Seminars

Share ideas. Interact with colleagues from other chapters.
Maximize the potential of your BGS Collegiate Chapter.

Beta Gamma Sigma offers its collegiate chapter advisors the opportunity to learn first-hand the best methods for running a BGS collegiate chapter.

Always a valuable experience for advisors, the BGS Collegiate Chapter Officer Training Seminar is a vital tool for maximizing the effectiveness of chapters. Chapter personnel learn from Central Office staff and one another through this one-day interactive program. 

Make sure your chapter is operating at its maximum potential – and your best students (those eligible for BGS invitations) are getting all they deserve – by sending one or more chapter representatives to a BGS Collegiate Chapter Officer Training Seminar.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone associated with the collegiate chapter is welcome to attend and learn at one of our Seminars. This includes:

  • Business School Deans
  • Chapter Advisors
  • Other Faculty/Staff working with the Chapter
  • Administrative Staff Members who provide assistance to the Chapter

This is a tremendous opportunity for anyone involved in running the chapter to learn new processes, find out about time-tested best practices, and learn from others in the same positions at other business schools. If your goal is to improve both the effectiveness of your chapter and the significance of rewarding lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma, this is the Training Seminar for you.


    Beta Gamma Sigma has changed dramatically over the last few years, and many more exciting developments can be expected in the near future. Don’t let your chapter fall behind. Representatives from your chapter must attend one of these seminars every 2-3 years to stay updated and every 3 years to qualify for the Outstanding Chapter program. Seminar participants will learn details about these important programs:

    • The Society's strategic plan for the future
    • Global Leadership Summit
    • Member Benefits/Discounts
    • Chapter Awards
    • Chapter Management System

    New chapters especially benefit from discovering how others have succeeded. If you are a new chapter representative at a school that has had a chapter for some time, you too should strongly consider attending one of these Training Seminars.

    Your chapter may not be taking full advantage of all its opportunities, and these Seminars can help you do a better job recognizing and rewarding your school’s top students.
