Also attending this event were two of the Appalachian State University's Brantley Risk Management & Insurance Board Members, Danielle Wade & Bernie Heinze.

This annual conference is an opportunity for GIS members to not only interact with each other and other school's chapters, but also network with employers. During this event, there were 60+ hiring companies, chapter management workshops, as well as several other professional development opportunities available to the attendees.

Bringing along 23 students, the organization brought home various awards from the event. Appalachian's Rho Chapter won awards in Alumni Relations, Chapter Management, Community Service, Membership Development, Public Relations, as well the Overall Excellent Chapter Award.

The organization also brought home 3rd out of 55 with their Chapter Roll Call, in which they submitted a video and played during that time. View Video
