Greetings PAS Members!

Upcoming Events

This Friday the Professional Accounting Society will be participating in UH-D’s One Main Event (OME) to recognize its student organizations and members.  No matter who wins the awards,  we are proud of our members’ dedication to making our organization amazing! Due to our sudden participation in the award ceremony, we changed the date of our sports event to the 22nd of April during the same time of 5pm-7pm.  Please sign-up at the same link that was provided. In two weeks we will be ending big with our Excel workshop and the visit to BKD!  The workshop will be instructed by Edward Yang from the Data Analytics Society . That being said, even if you attended last semester, it is best to take advantage of the new material that this semester has to offer. Make sure you have the visit to BKD on your calendar. PAS wants to make a great impression with the firm to secure on-campus interviewing in the future.  This will be a great opportunity for you and future members.
