Meet the Firms (MTF)

Who: Accounting Firms and Other Organizations that Hire Our Graduates, MTSU Students and Faculty

When: Thursday, September 5, 2019, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. (Set-up begins at 4:00 p.m., Reception at 4:30 p.m.)

Where: Student Union Building, Second Floor Ballrooms, MTSU Campus, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

MTF Overview

Meet the Firms is MTSU’s premiere recruiting event of the year. Beta Alpha Psi sponsors the event, and all accounting majors and recent accounting graduates are invited. This well-attended event will provide the opportunity for you to meet numerous potential employees before finalizing your campus interview decisions. Participants also enjoy connecting with colleagues, faculty, and former classmates.

MTF Set-up

We encourage you to bring as many people as you would like from your organization. We do not need the names in advance, but do request that all your representatives sign in upon arrival at the Student Union Building. A display table and two chairs will be provided for each participating organization; we find that most participants prefer to bring their own tablecloths. A second display table may be requested, space permitting. *Additional details are provided below.

MTF Parking

Please let us know how many parking passes you need for the event.  On-campus parking continues to be a challenge, and the construction on Middle Tennessee Boulevard and throughout campus will still be underway. Therefore, we suggest that you carpool if possible. MTSU is currently implementing a new online parking request system.  If that implementation is complete, we will provide you with an online link for each parking pass rather than mail passes, as was done in past years.

MTF Fees

The registration fee for Meet the Firms is $200 and includes one display table and two chairs. A second display table may be purchased for an additional $200.   The $200 Meet the Firms registration fee is waived for any organization that enters a team in the Battle for the BAP Cup as either a Sponsor Team or a Participating Team. Additionally, the fee for a second display table is waived for any organization that enters a Sponsor Team in the Battle for the BAP Cup. See the Golf Outing Entry Form for more information.  

Please use either the online registration form below or the hardcopy registration form previously sent via email.

Registration fees may be paid online (using a credit card or PayPal account) or via check made payable to Beta Alpha Psi.  Fees are due no later than event date. When paying online, be sure to include your Company Name in the field provided to ensure you receive proper credit for your payment.

If you complete the hardcopy registration form, please send completed forms to Dr. Kim Honaker via either of the following methods: (1) Mail: MTSU Department of Accounting, Box 50, Murfreesboro, TN 37132 or (2) E-mail: kim.honaker@mtsu.edu

* The availability of a second display table may be limited due to the number of registrant requests and space constraints. A second display table must be requested in advance and will be granted on a first-come, first served basis (according to request date). Priority to secure a second display table will be given to Golf Tournament Sponsors before tables are made available for purchase by other participants. If Beta Alpha Psi is unable to fulfill a request for a second display table, the fee paid, if any, will be refunded to your organization.

Golf Outing

Who: Accountants from throughout Tennessee and MTSU Students and Faculty

When: Friday, September 20, 2019, 8:00 a.m.

Where: Old Fort Golf Course, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Why: This is a wonderful opportunity for camaraderie and strengthening professional contacts, while providing funds to support our students.

The format of the golf outing is a four-person scramble.  Each team will consist of three members from your organization and one student.  Team entry fees entitle each team member to:

  • green and cart fees;
  • beverages during the round (nonalcoholic only); and
  • a ticket to the picnic which follows the golf outing.

Mulligans are included in the team entry fees and will not be sold separately.

Additional tickets to the picnic for non-golfers from the company/firm/government agency may be purchased for $10 each.

Teams may enter as Tournament Sponsor Teams or as Participating Teams.  While we are particularly grateful for our tournament sponsors, our students and faculty appreciate all participation.

Tournament sponsorship ($850) includes

  • One team entry as described above and additional team entries at the reduced rate of $400 per team.
  • Four additional tickets for non-golfers to the picnic that will follow the Golf Outing.
  • Priority will be given to tournament sponsors to secure a second display table for Meet the Firms at no additional charge (refer to details provided in the MTF section above).
  • Priority will be given to tournament sponsors in selecting a date to present at a regular BAP meeting. (See BAP Chapter Presentation Request Form for details.)

IMPORTANT: Online registration is closed. To inquire about late registration, please contact Sarah Olsen at Sarah.Olsen@mtsu.edu or (615) 898-5306.

One of the primary benefits of BAP membership is the quality of speakers that come to our campus each week. Our meetings are normally on Tuesday afternoons; they begin at 4:30 p.m. and last for approximately one hour. Following the meeting, we usually have an informal gathering to provide a time for the presenters and the students to mingle. Refreshments are served, and we always appreciate it greatly when the participating organization reimburses the cost.

Our process for scheduling speakers for weekly chapter meetings will continue in the manner we established in prior years. Several firms like to schedule their chapter presentation to coincide with their recruiting schedule, and, as a result, the requests to speak exceed our availability during certain timeframes. As noted in the “Save the Date” message sent out in the spring, our process for allocating chapter speaking dates will be as follows:

Priority 1 – firms that committed to golf tournament sponsorship by April 30
Priority 2 – firms that commit to golf tournament sponsorship by August 1
Priority 3 – firms that participate in Meet the Firms
Priority 4all others

We would be delighted to have you speak to our students and ask that you complete the BAP Chapter Presentation Request Form below:
