The UAB Financial Management Association student chapter was recently recognized as a Superior Chapter by the Financial Management Association International for the 2018-19 academic year.
The Superior Chapter designation is the highest honor awarded to a student chapter or honor society. Of 175 active student chapters, fewer than 10% receive the award annually.
Each chapter must meet certain criteria to be eligible for the award. In addition to demonstrating exceptional chapter management, the UAB chapter created and maintained a chapter website, published a newsletter, completed a chapter resume book, submitted two press releases and held a minimum of eight speaker/career development programs throughout the year.
“The Superior Chapter Award is a very flattering affirmation of the level of success with which all students involved have managed,” said finance instructor Daniel Sanabria, mentor and faculty advisor for the UAB FMA student chapter. “It is a reflection on the quality of speakers, superior student leadership and talent of future finance professionals produced by our school.”
Established in 1970, the Financial Management Association International (FMA) is a leader in the dissemination and development of financial decision-making. FMA promotes the understanding of financial practices and enhances financial education for more than 4,000 students, academicians and practitioners around the world.
The UAB FMA chapter is recognized on FMA’s website and in its membership publications. The chapter will also receive a special plaque to recognize this achievement.
