Meet the Firms (MTF)

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

When: Thursday, September 9, 2021, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. (Set-up begins at 3:45 p.m., Reception at 4:15 p.m.)

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

Meet the Firms Overview

Meet the Firms (MTF) 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.

Meet the Firms 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; most participants bring tablecloths to dress their tables. A second display table may be requested, space permitting. *Additional details on the request for a second table are provided below.

Meet the Firms Parking

On-campus parking continues to be a challenge, and we suggest you carpool if possible. We will utilize MTSU’s online parking request system and email your designated firm representative a parking registration link to be shared with attending employees. Paper parking passes will be mailed only by request or if we experience unexpected issues with the online system. Please let us know the number of parking passes needed for the event.

Meet the Firms Fees

The registration fee for MTF is $200 and includes one display table and two chairs. A second display table may be purchased for an additional $200.*

  

• The $200 MTF 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.  

• Organizations unable to attend MTF in person may obtain promotional assistance with your Handshake event through our BAP chapter communications for a reduced fee of $100; a copy of the BAP Resume Book is included with this virtual package. We recommend hosting your virtual event on a day other than Thursday, September 9 for optimal participation from students.

• To facilitate event planning, a surcharge of $50 will be assessed on MTF registration requests made after Friday, August 27, 2021.

Please complete the online registration form below or return the hardcopy version previously emailed by no later than Friday, August 27, 2021. Fees are due no later than event date.

To better facilitate our receipt of payment, we ask that you pay online using either a debit/credit card or a PayPal account. Be sure to include the same email address both in the "Payment Method" section of the registration form and in the online checkout form to ensure you receive proper credit for your payment. Contact Sara Musgrove at sara.musgrove@mtsu.edu should you require alternative payment arrangements.

If completing a paper registration, please return completed paper forms to Dr. Kim Honaker via either of the following methods:
- Mail: MTSU Department of Accounting, Box 50, Murfreesboro, TN 37132
- 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, MTSU BAP Students, and Faculty

When: Friday, September 17, 2021, 8:00 a.m.

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 following 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 to the picnic following the Golf Outing available for non-golfers who wish to attend.
  • Priority to secure a second display table for Meet the Firms at no additional charge (refer to details provided in the MTF section above).
  • Priority in selecting a date to present at a regular BAP meeting (see BAP Chapter Presentation Request Form for details).

Step 2: BAP Chapter Presentation Request Form


One of the primary benefits of BAP membership is the quality of speakers that come to campus each week to engage with our members and candidates. Meetings are held on Tuesday afternoons; they begin at 4:30 p.m. and last 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.

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

Priority 1 – firms that committed to golf tournament sponsorship by June 15
Priority 2 – firms that commit to golf tournament sponsorship by August 15
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:
