Transcript Accounting Society experience fWougJi networking For anyone who was interested in the field of Accounting, room 109 in Melcher Hall was the place to go. For only $35.00, students could gain membership into The Accounting Society (TAS), and much more. Student members were granted entry and food at meetings/events, a t- shirt, and a ticket to the annual banquet. To get into the banquet, members had to acquire a total of 900 points prior to TAS's final meeting, but that wasn't difficult considering the multiple opportunities for the members to earn points. "Our point system is a great indicator of member participation. The online points list allows our members to keep track of their progress throughout the semester. It assists us in distribution of awards and scholarships. You can accumulate points by attending any TAS sponsored events, making donations for charity events, working bake sales, and wearing your TAS tee-shirt. This is the best way for us to keep track of member involvement since with so many members it would be nearly impossible to keep tabs on everyone in any other way," said TAS president Francis Mathew, a senior accounting and finance major. The society had a lot to offer this year, giving out scholarships to deserving members, hosting companies such as Dynegy & Conoco, and joining in functions such as ExxonMobile Leadership Conference & Fall Career Fair. One thing TAS had that was especially helpful to those who eventually wanted to have a career in the field of accounting was the Resume Book, which was a hardbound book of resumes from members in TAS, created to reach employers around and out of Houston; TAS also had an Online Resume Bank. "The Resume Book and Online Resume Bank essentially serve as yet another way that networks our members and officers with the business professionals who are hiring.2 The hardbound resume book has been the bread and butter in the past and still is today, however, to make things more up to speed with technology, the Online Resume Bank will give employers quicker access to our resumes to fill positions. Since we cannot possibly set up meetings with fifty companies during one semester, the Resume Book fulfills this aspect by marketing the Accounting Society to many companies," said senior accounting and finance major George Minter, Resume Committee Chair of TAS Though TAS was mainly there to cater to its members, faculty and community were not forgotten. The society honored faculty through banquets held each semester and semi-annual bowling events. For community, part of the money that TAS collects through different kinds of sales was donated to food drives and other charitable causes; this year they wanted to collect even more money by adding to and diversifying their fundraising activities. Everyone obtained a lot out of different things out of their association with TAS, but one thing that everyone got was much-needed networking opportunities. "I have been a member of TAS for 2 years now, and it's been a wonderful experience. TAS provides students with the opportunity to network with corporate professionals and professors," said Internal Communications Officer, senior accounting major Iyobor Erbuomwan. - Sadaf Farooqui Confectionary Sale Gustavo Bello, senior finance major and TAS Fundraising chair, looks on as Joleen Jarratt, senior accounting major, and TAS's Internal Communications Officer Iyobor Erbuomwan set up a fundraising sale.
