    Financial Literacy Symposium
    [May 6, 2011, 8:30AM-1:30PM]

    UWB Beta Alpha Psi and Washington Society of Certified Public Accountants (WSCPA) are working together to host a Financial Literacy Symposium on Friday May 6, 2011 from 8:30AM to 1:30PM in the North Creek Events Center. This one-day event is aimed at bringing financial education to 120 high school students. The event features three keynote speakers and four interactive games to help the students develop skills in budgeting, credit card use, comparison shopping, and basically handling their personal finances. Also, the lessons will cover the value of higher education and promote the business program at the University of Washington Bothell.

    We need volunteers to make this event a success! Volunteers with time conflicts may take on a partial shift. Beta Alpha Psi members will receive both, professional (training) hours and service hours, by participating in this event. ALL students are encouraged to participate!!!

    If you would like to sign up and get involved, please email Ella Ivashkina at
