Business Student Clubs and Organizations
The purpose of the Accounting Club is to provide Accounting students with the opportunity to meet like-minded students, learn about the various career paths available, network with professionals, hone leadership skills, and learn about the professional certification options.
Professionals from the public, private, and / or government sector are often guest speakers at the meetings. The club also serves as the host for the annual fall semester event "Meet the Firms" and, when the opportunity arises, they participate in a field trip in the spring. Past field trips have involved visiting public accounting firms and various industry facilities in Seattle, Portland, and Boise.
The club helps bridge the gap between the students' academic and professional lives. Members meet twice a month and can earn one credit for participation each semester.

Business Student Organization- BSO
It is the Business Student Organization (BSO) mission to promote experience, education, and excellence by enhancing, leadership skills through a active student-based learning and service. During each spring and fall semesters BSO members meet regularly to hear guest speakers, engage in mentoring of incoming business students, and participate in the College's Career Fair. Business students earn one credit by attending these meetings. Members of BSO are representatives of Lewis-Clark State College and the Business Division and are expected to demonstrate ethical, respectful, and professional behavior at all events. "Fun nights" allow students an opportunity to get to know each other outside of volunteer functions. Additionally, students interact with local business owners, Business Division faculty, and fellow students through the semester.
