How to Become a Distinguished Member

The Epsilon Chapter offers a second level of membership for students who choose to participate in more events beyond the minimum 40 hours required for membership.


No Show Policy: Part of being a professional accounting student is attending events and activities to which you have dedicated yourself. This means that if you will not be able to attend a meeting, tutoring hour, or community service event, you must email V.P. of Service, Kayla Hansen within 24 hours’ notice to let her know that you will not be attending. Distinguished members are expected to miss no more than two events with notification.
