Georgetown’s FMA Named Superior Chapter
May 09, 2011
Georgetown University’s Chapter of the Financial Management Association (FMA) was the proud recipient of both the Gold Membership Development Award and the Superior Chapter recognition for the 2009-2010 academic year.
FMA chapters that induct at least 100 new members in a given academic year are awarded the Gold Membership Development Award. This was the first year that the Georgetown chapter earned this prestigious distinction and was one of only four schools nationwide to be recognized with the gold award. Georgetown had earned the Silver Membership Development Award in each of the two previous years.
Fewer than 5 percent of FMA chapters nationwide earn the distinction of Superior Chapter, and this is the third consecutive year that Georgetown earned the honor. To be named a Superior Chapter, an FMA chapter must meet certain requirements, including hosting a certain number of events/speakers throughout the year, providing members with at least two corporate site visits, and inducting qualified students into the FMA National Honor Society.
FMA officers for the 2009-2010 academic year were President Andrew Madorsky, Junior Vice President Patrick Go, Sophomore Vice Presidents Sam Biesiada and Will Chu, and Vice President of Membership Olga Dorosh. The officers worked throughout the year to increase the visibility of the FMA on campus and to offer valuable programs for its members. Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business Teaching Professor Lynn Doran serves as faculty advisor to the group.
