HOW TO JUDGE THE CREDIBILITY OF AN HONOR SOCIETY

The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) has asked its member societies, including Pi Gamma Mu, to help educate the public on how to judge the credibility of honor societies and provides the following information on their website, achsnatl.org:
At any given time, a handful of organizations call themselves honor societies while operating more like profit-making ventures. In ACHS's opinion, these societies offer little or no benefit in advancing student scholarship and leadership, and membership in them does not indicate that a student has attained "superior scholastic achievement" as defined by both the Association of College Honor Societies and the United States Office of Personnel Management.

ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE HONOR SOCIETIES

Honor SocietyPi Gamma Mu is one of 69 members of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), which is the authority on standards and definitions for the honor society movement. ACHS has stepped up efforts to alert the higher education community to the standards of traditional honor societies. In contrast, some new so-called honor societies exist only online and allow self-nomination, accepting fees with no questions asked. If in doubt about an organization, you can check out the ACHS website (www.achsnatl.org) for the list of honor societies that are members.
