Members of ABA have the opportunity to build and develop various skills through its committees. While all committees receive top-notch professional development in resume building, interview critiques, public speaking, networking, and more, each one caters to our members’ specific interests – whether it’s in service, photography, cinematography, consulting, or otherwise. Within committees, members interact with others alongside their respective chairs, allowing them to build teamwork and leadership skills by organizing and executing various events throughout the semester. All in all, ABA develops its members into the leaders of tomorrow.
The Community Service Committee embodies ABA’s pillar of “service” through philanthropy, volunteering, and dedicating hours of hard work to help others locally and internationally. Through a corporate social responsibility project, members not only learn the impact of service and outreach, but also develop professionally to make a difference in their communities through leadership and compassion.

The Finance Committee aims to impart financial concepts and participate in financial simulations to enable its members to have a better idea of the financial industry. Through a semester-long portfolio project, members are not only able to apply what they have learned, but also develop a passion for the world of finance. In addition, they are in charge of planning the Wells Fargo Speaker Panel and the Internal Finance Case Competition, where committee members have the opportunity to solve finance-specific cases.
