Mission of Organization

The mission of the IUP Student Accounting Association (SAA) shall be to further interest in the field of Accounting through educational meetings on options within the industry, to unite all IUP students studying accounting and those interested in learning about the profession, and to provide students with the opportunity to network with potential employers.

How to Join

The SAA accepts all business majors and all university students who share enthusiasm and passion for the field of accounting. Membership into the organization shall be open throughout the year, and the first step to join is to attend and sign in at a meeting. To ultimately become a member, interested students must earn five membership points.

How to Earn Membership Points

Active membership in the SAA is not based on paying membership dues; it is based on earning membership points. Once a student earns five points, they become an active member for the current semester. In order to maintain membership in the SAA, students must continue to earn five points every semester. Points can be earned by attending the meetings and events.
