Creating Value for Members

The Saint Joseph University’s AIS chapter has gone to great lengths in the past year to grow the relevance and importance of Business Intelligence and Information Systems (BITS). The organization seeks to create value for members through events promoting professional development. It is designed to act as a resource to Business Intelligence majors and minors providing members with resources to build resumes, network and become more involved on campus.

StJosephsOne of the most important events the chapter hosts is the annual Business Intelligence Networking Night. The night features participants from firms such as Brooksource, Apex Systems, Comcast, Ernst & Young LLP and more. The night includes a meet-and-greet style networking event that allows students to network with people in the industry. BITS also hosts noteworthy speakers who present important information and insight to students and members regarding the information systems field.

Along with multiple professional development opportunities, the organization encourages members to be involved in community service as well. Members of BITS participated in volunteering at Project Home located in Philadelphia, helping individuals break the cycle of poverty. They also volunteered with Cradles to Crayons, providing children from low-income homes with essential items they need to thrive. Community service opportunities like this are excellent opportunities for members to build resumes while helping people in need.

The club consists of 45 active members and continues to recruit and grow through word-of-mouth marketing by officers and highly involved members. As they look toward the future, the chapter plans to implement fundraising activities within the next year, increase membership, and continue to expand events and activities.

“Through hard work and a motivated team of officers, BITS will continue to thrive and create value for its members as the Business Intelligence concentration continues to grow at Saint Joseph’s University,” said current President Giana Alongi.
