Dennis Reigle receives Beta Alpha Psi President's Award

Dennis Reigle, director of  academic and career development at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, has received the President’s Award from Beta Alpha Psi, an honorary organization for accounting, financial and information systems students and professionals.

 
The award is given to an individual who has had a significant influence on Beta Alpha Psi over the course of many years. 
 
Reigle served Beta Alpha Psi as chair and member of its advisory forum, a body of leaders from industry, professional service firms, and government. He was president in 2002 and 2003 and is currently the AICPA’s liaison to its board of directors.  During his tenure as president, he launched an electronic process for Beta Alpha Psi chapters to submit their activity reports twice a year.  They previously had to submit monthly paper reports. 
 
As director of academic and career development, Reigle led the Institute’s development and publication of the annual Trends in the Supply of Accounting Graduates and the Demand for Public Accounting Recruits, which reports on trends in accounting enrollments, degrees awarded, and entry-level hiring practices. He was influential in the creation of the Accounting Doctoral Scholars program, which seeks to reverse the shortage of Ph.D.s in U.S. colleges and universities by recruiting CPAs to become accounting professors.
 
“On a personal level, Denny Reigle has served as a mentor to many of us in Beta Alpha Psi,” said Nancy B. Nichols, Ph.D., the current president.  “He is the person I call when I need to figure out  how to handle a difficult situation. He always provides insightful and creative advice.”
