Alexandra Miller has been named as the 2018-2019 president of Beta Alpha Psi's Board of Directors.

Founded in 1919, Beta Alpha Psi is the international honor organization for financial information students and professionals. The organization recognizes scholastic and professional achievement, promotes the study of accounting, provide opportunities for self-development, and encourages ethical and social responsibility.

Miller previously served as the national president of the American Woman’s Society of CPAs, as a member of the AICPA Women’s Initiative Executive Committee, and as the Beta Alpha Psi professional partners chair from 2014 to 2016. She is also a member of the Arizona Society of CPAs, and the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance, among many others.

Miller announced that her theme for the year will be "Inspiring Future Leaders to Leave a Legacy of Excellence."

“Why do we plant a tree? We plant a tree so that others will have shade,” Miller said in a statement. “I want to inspire future leaders to think not just about how they’re going to succeed in their careers, but about the legacy they’re leaving for others who follow them. What seeds can they plant now that will develop in the future into shade for someone they don’t even know?”

“I am thrilled to be part of helping Beta Alpha Psi celebrate its 100th anniversary,” Miller continued. “The profession has changed so much over the past century, and yet our core values remain the same. As a small firm practitioner and entrepreneur, I hope to show students, faculty and business professionals a different focus for career possibilities. The opportunities in the future are limitless. We just need to take that leap, be fearless, and meet the challenges head on.”
