About the Financial Leadership Society

FLS editable

The Financial Leadership Society (FLS) is the precursor organization to Beta Alpha Psi (BAP).

If you are an informed and proactive accounting student, but do not meet the coursework requirement for BAP, you should consider joining FLS.  FLS members are invited to attend all Beta Alpha Psi professional meetings, but are only required to attend one in a given semester (and are exempt from service hour requirements).

Applicants should be freshmen, sophomores, and first semester juniors who are accounting majors, or are considering accounting as a major. Applicants may be currently enrolled in Intermediate Accounting I; however, applicants who have completed Intermediate Accounting I are ineligible for FLS and should be applying for membership into Beta Alpha Psi.

Applicants must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.0 GPA in all accounting courses. FLS membership does not extend beyond the semester in which the candidate joins (i.e. student must re-join each semester assuming eligibility). Application details will be emailed to all pre-business and declared accounting students. Spring applications become available in mid-December and Fall applications become available in mid-July. If you do not receive a personalized application link via email by the beginning of the fall or spring semesters, email Faculty Advisor Colby Lakas (chl0009@auburn.edu) to request one.
