How to Benefit from your BGS Membership

By Matt Plodzien posted 03-29-2018 10:54


It’s reasonable to ask “why should I” when you’re invited to join an honor society. Most people see it as an investment in themselves and their future careers. The best thing for an honor society to do is to provide the return on the investment their members expect. At Beta Gamma Sigma we put a large emphasis on ROI and what we can do to help our members during their academic careers and beyond, or what we like to call lifetime value. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can get the most out of your BGS membership:


Get involved in your local chapter. Every collegiate chapter needs motivated individuals to help organize events, take leadership roles, and work with fellow members. This can be a great way to gain valuable leadership experience and build a network of hard-working and dedicated individuals. bgs_picture.jpg

Join us at the Global Leadership Summit. The GLS is the premier event put on by BGS and its sponsors. It features dynamic speakers, thought leaders, hands-on experiences and innovators from all around the world. It also gives you a chance to network with members, schools, and businesses. Be part of a global gathering of dedicated individuals sharing their experiences and insights.

Take advantage of various educational benefits. BGS offers exclusive benefits to all our members. We have internships and volunteer opportunities that can take you to Washington DC, Europe, Asia, Africa, and more. Not only can you expand your skill set, but you can gain valuable life experiences. If you are seeking to continue your education BGS has partnered with several graduate schools to offer exclusive scholarships to our members. Other school partnerships offer our members GMAT/GRE and application fee waivers. Finally, if you are looking to gain an edge in your CPA, GRE, GMAT and other exams our partners offer special members-only pricing.

Become a Certified Ethical Leader. Through our partnership with The NASBA Center for the Public Trust we offer our members the ability to take part in the Ethical Leadership Certification Program. This is a chance to learn from ethical leaders and top professionals from companies like AT&T and UPS. Gain the skills necessary to make ethical decisions and prevent conflicts in the workplace.bgs_picture.jpg

Gain value from our professional benefits. Being a BGS member means that you gain lifetime value. Our members receive special discounts on auto and motorcycle insurance, travel, technology, gifts and services, publications, and professional attire.

Give back to your community. BGS Gives Back is an opportunity for our members to help out in their communities and bond with one another. It’s a chance to display our core values of honor, wisdom, and earnestness, along with leadership and service. Sign up your chapter by visiting the BGS website.

Join an Alumni Chapter or Networking Group. Even after your time in the classroom has ended you can still meet with fellow BGS members in your area. Check out the many BGS Alumni Chapters and Networking Groups around the world and join them for activities, meetings, special speakers, dinners, and more.
