Found in 1975 by a group of Asian students who strove to establish an Asian business community as the minority back then, Berkeley ABA is currently the largest Haas-sponsored undergraduate organization on campus with more than 500 members. With a lifetime membership fee of $25 for underclassmen and $15 for juniors and seniors, ABA offers a long lasting relationship tie for its members to sustain the mutual benefits with the organization. Now consisting of diverse ethnicities, majors from Computer Science to English, and grade levels, ABA members set out to provide a bridge between professionalism in the career industry, the Berkeley community, and global service. ABA also promotes scholarship and leadership at the prestigious Walter A. Haas School of Business, finds various prominent career opportunities, and constructs networking within and beyond the Berkeley community. ABA Alumni have established pave ways in distinguished companies such as Deloitte, Ernst and Young, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, and more. Through numerous sponsorships from such reputable corporations, ABA strives to give back to the community with charitable events and donations to organizations. ABA members hosts VITA, the annual Voluntary Income Tax Assistance program, to help low income families in Oakland Chinatown tax their files. Such opportunities not only helps the community, but also prepares the members to enter the real career industry with accounting and financing training sessions. ABA lifetime memberships are offered throughout the year, and the Committee Member applications are offered during the recruitment weeks at the beginning of the semester following interviews. ABA consists of eight committees—Community Service, Development, Marketing, Media Technology, Professional, Publications, Social, and Special Activities.
