Alpha Beta Gamma provides a vehicle to honor outstanding business professionals and community leaders through National Honorary Membership in the Society, and to bring business professionals on campus to speak to and assist students. Delta Chapter, for example, sponsors a “Power Breakfast with a President” featuring a CEO from a prominent local business. These CEOs speak on academic and employment topics in a motivational manner, give advice and answer students’ questions on how to succeed in today’s market. Kiwanis and Lions Clubs are great sources of business speakers for the chapter.
