To achieve Superior Chapter Award status from FMA International, USD’s FMA chapter met or exceeded several specific criteria, including the ability to demonstrate exemplary chapter management and providing members with many program activities. In the past year, USD FMA hosted several campus events, including seminars on the FDIC, real estate investment and the Education Services Industry.
“I’m very proud of our students as they dedicate their time and talent outside the classroom to make sure that their experience in FMA at USD is meaningful,” noted Angeline Lavin, Ph.D., professor of finance at USD and FMA adviser. “Because of their commitment, our students have built a strong FMA chapter here at USD. We also appreciate the alumni and supporters of USD and the finance program who take the time to visit campus and share their knowledge with our current students.”
USD’s FMA chapter hosted several speakers during the year, and the academic year culminated with a luncheon on the same day as the inaugural USD-Wells Fargo Equity Research Competition last month. Logan Holter, a current FMA member from Platte, S.D., was inducted into the FMA National Honor Society at the luncheon. USD’s FMA chapter also publishes a yearly newsletter for business faculty, students and alumni, and maintains its own Web site (http://orgs.usd.edu/fma/index.htm) where information on upcoming events as well as information on becoming a member of the organization is available.
