The Associates

Through the advice and assistance of the International Advisory Forum, Beta Alpha Psi instituted the Associates
Program in 1981. The Associates Program enables Beta Alpha Psi to further its objectives by providing financial
support for events such as the Thomas J. Burns Undergraduate Student Seminar, the Graduate Case Seminar,
Regional Meetings and other ongoing chapter activities. Each member of the Associates provides financial
support at a level consistent with the organization’s involvement in business education and employment of
accounting, finance and information systems graduates. Members of the Beta Alpha Psi Associates are given
equal recognition for each event or project supported by the Associates’ funds.

graduation. In 2003, a doctoral dissertation done
at New York University by Barbara Palaia found
that “a highly significant relationship between BAP
membership and cognitive moral development
exists,” indicating that BAP members have absorbed
many lessons about professional and personal ethics.
She also found that volunteerism, and frequency
of volunteerism, is related to ethical development.
As she put it, the results of her study demonstrate
reasons why BAP members are considered the
“cream of the crop.” This year’s annual meeting in
Washington, D.C. has as its theme, Getting Involved,
Staying Involved—a call to maintain and grow the

                                           Report of Independent Public Accountants



To the Board of Directors
Beta Alpha Psi




We have audited the accompanying statements of financial position of Beta Alpha Psi as of April 30, 2006 and 2005, and the
related statements of activities and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the
Organization's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those
standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are
free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures
in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable
basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of
Beta Alpha Psi as of April 30, 2006 and 2005, and the changes in its net assets and cash flows for the years then ended,
in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
