    Our members usually wish to pursue careers in finance, but some simply have an interest in finance and want to learn more about it. Many of our meetings feature a guest speaker, someone who has excelled and become a leader in the field, and is willing to share the secrets of his or her success.

    We welcome all undergraduate and MBA students. For new members, local chapter dues are $25, payable by check to the Finance Association or in cash. National Honor Society dues are separate and are paid to the FMA.

    Our meetings are held first and third Wednesdays of the month at 5:30 pm in Galloway 242 (College of Business building). For a full list of meetings and events, check our calendar located in the display case on the first floor of Galloway, our Facebook page, or OrgSync.

    Individuals accepted for membership in the Honor Society have the distinction of belonging to the only international honor society that specifically recognizes the achievement of finance majors. As such, it serves to acknowledge their educational achievements in the areas of financial economics and decision making.

    The requirements for undergraduate membership are an overall grade point average (GPA) of 3.25 and a GPA of 3.25 in at least six hours of finance-related course work. The requirements are similar for graduate students, except that the benchmark for both GPAs is 3.50.
