Alumni Spotlight
Alumnus Frank Ruiz shares why he joined BAP

"I joined BAP because the previous VP of Membership showed me how good an opportunity it was to build a strong network. I can honestly say it’s thanks to BAP that I now work at Deloitte, and for that I am eternally grateful. It’s a great organization that is built on the strong bond between its members and their constant willingness to support each other."
