How BGS gives back!

In July, staff from BGS’ headquarters participated in our own BGS Gives Back activity! Staff members from all departments helped out Loaves and Fishes, a local homeless shelter and food bank, by assembling and distributing food boxes and care packages to people in need.

Has your chapter (collegiate or alumni) been giving back to your community? If so, tell us about it! Now’s the time to start planning your next service activity—contact a charity in your area and find out how you and your chapter can give back to those in need.


Thought leaders: share your expertise!

Here at BGS HQ, we’ve been working hard to develop ConnectBGS and the CBGS blog. Our goal is to grow it into a place where members like you can go to network, discuss business-related challenges, and learn from each other’s experiences. But we need help from YOU, the best in business, to make it happen!

If you’d like to write a post for the ConnectBGS blog, or if you have ideas for blog post topics you would like to see, contact
Tiffany Leong.

The board of governors visits BGS Global HQ

Last month, Beta Gamma Sigma’s board of governors held their biannual meeting in St. Louis, Missouri—minutes away from BGS Global HQ! The board dedicated an evening to tour the office, meet the staff and share a meal together. This gave both the board and the staff the opportunity to talk about their roles, discuss ideas and explore how they can work together for the benefit of the Society.
