Several Penn State Smeal College of Business student organizations were recently recognized with awards from the Penn State Office of Student Activities.

An Outstanding Student Organization Executive Board of the Year award was granted to the Penn State Marketing Association (PSMA), an active student group in marketing and a collegiate chapter of the American Marketing Association that provides students with leadership and professional development opportunities. The PSMA also coordinates the Marketing Career Fair at Smeal.

Outstanding Student Organization of the Year awards went to the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) and Women in Business (WIB). NABA’s mission is to develop and encourage all minorities considering a business degree at Penn State. The organization also hosts professional development activities, including an annual Netiquette dinner to provide students a chance to practice networking skills and proper dining etiquette.

WIB’s mission is to increase recruitment and retention of women in the business fields. It holds several networking and professional development events each semester and also provides opportunities for members to give back to the community through service projects.

An Outstanding Program of the Year award went to WIB’s Powerful Women Paving the Way conference, an annual professional development conference that invites professional women to join Penn State students in learning about issues that affect women in career development. This year’s Powerful Women Paving the Way conference will be held on April 18-19 and features Penn State Lady Lions Basketball Coach Coquese Washington as the kickoff dinner keynote speaker, as well as several other distinguished guests.

An Outstanding Adviser of the Year award went to Bill Lippert, coordinator of student and corporate services at Smeal. Lippert works with all Smeal student organization leaders to assist them with programming as well as other aspects of managing their organizations.
