Greetings PAS Members!

Last Week’s Recap

Last week we held our second general meeting of the semester.  We had a great turn out this month and supplied our attendees with beneficial information.  If you were unable to attend these meetings and would like to receive a synopsis of what was presented, please email pas.secretary@gmail.com.  We would also like to thank Alex Sanchez, Alejandra Villarreal, Patrick okorafor and Bowen Shepard for dedicating their time at the rodeo this past weekend!

Upcoming Events

Spring Break is next week! Can I get a Yee-Haw?! This unfortunately means we will be taking mid-terms this week, if you haven’t already.  PAS wishes all of you the best of luck in your exams!  Coming up this month is the Roger CPA review.  This review will provide you with the strategies to taking the exam and what to expect.  It is extremely important to attend as many events as you can.  They allow you to expand your knowledge and to meet people outside of your usual network.  The more events you attend now will greatly influence your ability to obtain internships and positions later.

CPA Exam Game Plan

Roger CPA Review will be giving a presentation on the strategy behind tackling the CPA Exam.  Topics will include scheduling sections of the exam, the time management aspect of the application process and the upcoming changes and strategy differences from the 2015-2016 version versus the 2017 version.  CPA Exam reviews can be very expensive.  PAS is offering to you the chance to learn invaluable information regarding the exam for FREE!  Join us on March 10th from 230pm-4pm in room B113 to take advantage of this golden opportunity and learn about the test we are all looking forward to PAS (pun intended)!  The event will be open to all members and non-members, however business casual wear is required.

Rodeo Fun!

We have officially worked our first weekend at the Rodeo!  Thank you volunteers for representing PAS with your hard work and dedication at NRG Stadium this past weekend! The volunteers distributed drinks and worked the cash register. According to our President, Alex Sanchez, working the rodeo is completely different than volunteering at the Texans games and actually prefers the rodeo.  You will be working directly with the customers which provides for a dynamic work atmosphere.  To volunteer with these amazing PAS members, please email Bowen Shepard at pas.aramarkchair@gmail.com.
